Have new library on right side of the start menu?

Is it possible too have the newly created library have a link in the right side of the start menu? Like below as example.

Classic Shell allows you to have a completely configurable start menu. Welcome to Classic Shell

Thanks but that only changes what the default start menu buttons open to.

No Gary. It only replaces the start menu. There is even a Windows 7 skin if you prefer it. It doesn't change the Win 7 start menu directly so you can still access it unchanged if you want to. The default to access the original is Win+Shift. It is very configurable and you can add almost any shortcut to it you want.

This is how it looks with a Win 7 skin.

There is also an option to add a toolbar to Explorer with configurable buttons.
