Adding My Computer to the Start Menu? (how do I do it?) Win7 64

Hi,
For some reason My Computer is no longer showing in the start> Menu on the right side? Or perhaps it was never there

Is there a way that I could put it back there?

TIA

Hi there Try this Right-click on the Start Menu icon and choose "Properties".
Click the "Customize" button.

Start Menu - Customize

In the first item ("Computer") select "Display as link".
Click "OK" twice
