Windows 7: changing shortcuts in windows explorer

changing shortcuts in windows explorer


In that Start Menu I have Win Explorer in either the pinned section or frequent programs. There's an arrow to the right of it to show the directories I navigate to frequently. The problem is this section doesnt contain the folder I need to go to the most. Is there some way to choose what folders appear in that area?

Also, what is this area called?

Hello Dan,

Do you mean the buttons on the dark right side of the Start Menu?

If so, then you could use the Customize Start Menu settings to select from a few more to add or remove from here.

Otherwise the free version of Start Menu 7 is a great to use to have whatever you like.

Hope this helps,
