Start Menu - Maintenance folder

The Maintenance folder that was showing within my Start Menu by default has suddenly disappeared.

Can anyone advise how I can get it to show , or alternatively , what was in that Maintenance folder so I can create a shortcut etc. Thanks.

Hello Sanfranman,

Here's a copy of the Maintenance folder from my system attached below in a ZIP file. You would just need to download it to your desktop, extract (drag and drop) the Maintenance folder to the desktop, then unblock the Maintenance folder and all shortcuts in it. Afterwards you can move the Maintenance folder to the location in OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore it.

In addition for anything else that may be missing:
Start Menu All Programs in Windows 7 - Restore Default Shortcuts

Hope this helps,

Many thanks Shawn. Worked like a charm. NOW I will stop tinkering around with the Start Menu which caused my problem in the first place.
