Windows 7: Folder Problems

Folder Problems

In Vista I could right click on the start button, then open all users and change or add folders. I would do this more or less to keep the amount of items small. In Windows 7 any attempt to add a folder says it cannot because the folder is open somewhere else. ?

Hello Markst,

This tutorial can help show you how to do this in Windows 7.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the response, but not exactly what I need. The menu I need includes all the programs I have added..

Not sure by what you mean by that. You only have the current single user and all users location for the Start Menu All Programs area to choose from in Windows 7. Look in both areas in the tutorial to see if they are there.

Tried that. Problem is that I can create a "new folder" but cannot rename it. Here is the response. The action cannot be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program..

This tutorial may allow you to rename it afterwards. It is the same as in Vista.
