Windows 7: Locked out of editing Start tokens

01 Nov 2009   #1

Windows XP Service Pack 3
Locked out of editing Start tokens

Windows 7, in my view, unwisely does not permit users with administrative privileges to edit their programs tokens in the start menu. This is a change from XP.

When you have a bunch of programs, it sometimes makes sense to put them into logical group folders, e.g. Tools, Online, Media, etc. Otherwise, the list grow too long to review easily.

You can do this in safe mode. But access to the database should not be restricted for this purpose.
