Windows 7: Can I Create Submenus In The Start Menu?

Can I Create Submenus In The Start Menu?

I want to create submenus in the LEFT panel in the Start Menu, but pinning a folder just creates a shortcut to explorer....I am willing to download first-or-third-party software to do this. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
Many thanks,

This is essentially what I want (roll the mouse over to expand submenu), except I want to create custom folders.

Seems that it's not possible(at least without a serious registry or code hack) to do exactly what you want: technet.microsoft.com. Would you settle for this: add custom folder library to start menu?

So the second link basically adds a new library to the right panel of the start menu?
I would imagine it would be simple for someone to create an application that supports submenus, just like Google Chrome does with its submenu with the "Most Visited" and "Recently Closed" tabs (as in the picture I posted above).

Apparently not in Win7, to the best of my knowledge.

Alright, thanks. I'll keep searching for something that works.

Have a look at this "Start Menu 7" from our "Free Software Thread"

FREE Great Programs for Windows 7

I think it may suit your needs, i gave it a try a while ago but it was a bit to busy for me. It is fully customizable but takes a bit of time to nut out everything you can do with it & you can simply close the program & deselect it from running at start up to go back to your default Start menu
