Windows 7: Folders Pinned to Start Menu

Folders Pinned to Start Menu

Alright, I was wondering if it was at all possible to get a folder pinned to the start menu AND have it have the expansion arrow to the right, like Visual Studio, and Steam do.

My idea is to make categories of folders, like system maintenance, and have a debugger, a registry cleaner, anti-virus, etc in this folder and then be able to access it from the start menu pinned folder directly without having to open the folder explicitly and run the .exe.

Any ideas?

Hello ThisIsUrLife, and welcome to Seven Forums.

To pin/add an expandable folder on the Start Menu, you could use a free program like Start Menu 7 (non Pro version) to do so.

Hope this helps,

while generally yes, this would work, i was looking to hold the same UI and implementation of the start menu as it is, and essentially add the functionality to the existing folders.
