Pin folders to StartMenu - right panel

Hi all,

What I am trying to do is add a link to a few folders on my startmenu, but not on the left side, i keep all my programs pinned there but on the right side where Computer, Control Panel, Documents all those links exists, is it possible to add links there? any OS hacks to enable this idea?


Thanks

FYI: I added a value in my registry and was able to pin folders to the left side, rather the right though.

Something like this you can have multiple folders or multiple items or both you can even put a program in there to.

Hello Kade,

The free program Classic Shell will allow you to customize the Start Menu like this and more.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
