My Music link won't show up in Start Menu

Hi, for some reason when I go to start menu properties, and customize, the Music shortcut is ticked to be displayed as link but it's not showing up. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?

Welcome to sevenforums!

Have you tried to unticked then ticked it again or set it as menu or even not show, then apply those settings? All works here.

Hello Prosinz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you still have a C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music folder?

If not, then use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the My Music folder to it's default location. Afterward it's restored, check to see if it will show up in the Start Menu.

User Folders - Restore Default Location

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Humm...seems normal, i have it aswell set like that.

Does this occurs to the music folder only?

Otherwise try a SFC/SCANNOW command: Here the tutorial!

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?
