Windows 7: My Music, My Pictures and My Videos links not showing up on Start Menu

My Music, My Pictures and My Videos links not showing up on Start Menu

As the title states, I cannot get my music, pictures and videos links to show up on the right side of my start menu. I have used all of Brink's tutorials and or registry hacks and double checked everything...but to no resolve. Any one have other suggestions.

Hello Cisco, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you already have those items checked in the Customize Start Menu settings to have those folders added to the dark right side of the Start Menu as either a link or menu?

Afterwards, you could use the tutorial below to have them open to their C:\Users location instead of their library location.

Start Menu User Folder Buttons - Open to Users Instead of Libraries

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yessir I sure do. They don't even appear on the dark side/right side of the start menu at all. I have done both the downloaded registry fixes to have them appear, as well as double checked them manually using your tutorial. So, then I thought, let me do your tutorial that you just mentioned to see if that may force them to appear and no dice. I am at a loss. LMK if you need any further info or screenshots to help me out. I really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Yes, please go ahead and post screenshots of your Start Menu, and the "Customize Start Menu" settings showing these items checked to see if that may help reveal a cause.

Do you know how long ago this started to happen and if you mya have a restore point that you might be able to do a system restore with.
