Windows 7: Personalize Start Menu to have link to Personal Folder?

Personalize Start Menu to have link to Personal Folder?

I am sure there is a way, but I never really heard of one.

Like in start menu, you have "user", "Documents", "music", etc...

Is there a way to possibly rename one of those folders, and link it to a different location, that is your own personal folder?

Just thought thatd be cool.

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?
