Windows 7: Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu

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?

Drag it on to the start menu ( left hand pane) and pin it and it will open up in a new window when clicked.

Sorry i know its not what you want but its the only option i know.

yeah.. I cannot use that method. You see, I need it for a fix mentioned in this thread: Get back XP Style "All Programs" ?

What this fix does if take you favorites folder in the start menu and turns into a All Programs menu that displays like the program links like XP does.

Thanks for trying.
