Yes should have a bit more detail. But the program that you want there go to it maybe as - start - all programs - (program) right click on the program and pin to start menu

In practice, I have a link that executes the following command:
Code:
"C:\Program Files\uvnc bvba\UltraVNC\vncviewer.exe" -config "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\UltraVNC\Pluto_port_xxxx.vnc" -password "xxxxxxxxxx"
and I should put it in the left panel at the top of the Start menu for all users.

So, how do I do this?

Thanks

Bye

Create a shortcut on desktop> Drag to start button> When start menu opens drag to list

It will not be pinned though

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
