How do I change Start Menu folders (Documents, Pictures, Downloads)

Is there any way to change these links?



I'd like to change it to have a link to:

Billy
My Documents (not a library of documents)
Documents
Movies (M:/)
TV Shows (T:/)

Thanks,
Lith.

Not sure whether this tutorial will show you how to do exactly what you want, but you might want to look at Option 2 in particular.

Start Menu - Customize

Nah, that only lets you turn the links on/off - it doesn't let you change them.

Thanks anyway

It doesn't change any system files. You can get it from here. Welcome to Classic Shell
