Windows 7: Avoiding Libraries in the Start Menu

Avoiding Libraries in the Start Menu

Hi there. User of Windows 7 Professional x64.

On the Start menu, I wish to have Documents, Pictures, Music and Videos point directly to the folders for those objects, and not to libraries. I prefer not to use libraries.

There is an excellent tutorial here, called How to Make Windows 7 Start Menu User Folder Buttons Open to Users Instead of Libraries Location. I just want to be 100% sure I understand what this does before I try it. Sorry if it's a silly question.

Let's use my Documents folder as an example. Will this tutorial point Documents on the Start menu to C:\Users\<my-user-account>\My Documents ?

This should disable libraries in the startmenu. I got annoyed by the library function in windows7. I mean, it's handy and all, but I prefered the startmenu buttons to navigate to the real folder, in stead of the library of the folder. I wanted to view the folder as a child of its parent folder,...
