Add more libraries links to start menu

I just messing with the registry again, where I found I could do some tweaks for the start menu.

I was starting to post it here, but then I thought I should make a tutorial about it.

You need to log off and on...Or kill explorer.exe and start it again from Taks Manager

edit: I just found you can do this from Start menu options

Please tell me if you have this option, I feel so embarrased I just posted a tutorial about it with a registry fix!!

Well, it wasn't a tweak after all...It's always been there as an option, I just found out. I edited the tutorial accordingly.
