Windows 7: Windows 7 Pinned Expanding Folders on Start Menu

Windows 7 Pinned Expanding Folders on Start Menu

Ok, so I installed windows 7 64bit RC on my computer last night. Everything is going good. All of my programs work.

On the top of the start menu is the Getting Started Folder <startmenu1.jpg & startmenu2.jpg>

I like how the folder expands and I'd really like it if there is some way for me to make my own customized folder on the top of the start menu in place of the Getting Started Folder with my own shortcuts inside. Is this possible?

Hello Fuzorsilverbolt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I have not tried this myself, but this may help you in creating a jump list (expanding part from arrow) for it.
