Windows 7: Start Menu: Custom Folder Menu

Start Menu: Custom Folder Menu

Hello,

I've been searching around, and failed to find a post with an answer.

I'm currently trying to figure out wether I can create a custom map, and make it a menu which is able to expand like the "Getting Started" menu.

I have my folder "Microsoft Office" with shortcuts with all the programs, however I fail to find a way to make it expand like a menu.

Tried to make a win32bit DWORD key in regedit, following a earlier post I found, but with no luck.

Hope ya know how to do.

Scout

Heya Shawn,

It looks very intresting, but that's Jumplist, means it will be placed on the process bar, aigh?

What about the Start Menu? - just like "Getting Started" menu

The expansion arrows in the Start Menu for programs are also jump lists as well.
