In older Windows up through XP I have always customized the start menu to reduce the clutter of programs shown. I create several main categories/folders such as Work Programs, Multimedia Programs, Games, Utilites, etc. and then move all the programs shortcuts listed into each category that I wanted them to be. Thus, when I clicked on Start, I would just see my category folders, then go to the category I wanted and see just the programs of that category. I am about to start using a computer with Windows 7 and I want to be able to do that also. I hate clicking on Start and seeing a long, jumbled up list every program. What a mess! Not being familiar with Windows 7, I don't know how to do it. I know that the "old" Documents and Settings is no longer "real" and that everything is listed under Users. Which is listed as "access denied". So -- can I do what I want and, if so, how? I have to change security/permissions or something?
