Custom Library in Start Menu

Simple. I want to put my Downloads Library on the start menu as a link eg. under Documents, Pictures, Music. I know if you go to the customize menu you can select Downloads but that is the folder from User.

Hello DevourDarkness,

Sorry, but that is not possible in Windows 7. However you can use the tutorial below to enable pinning folders to the Start Menu, then press and hold Shift and right click on the Documents Library and click on Pin to Start Menu.

Hope this helps,
