What items can be pinned to start menu?

I know about right clicking on program shortcuts and then selecting "pin to start menu" option but can one pin things like documents folder, temp folder on hard drive, control panel, windows update etc?

thanx

Hello TC,

By default you cannot pin folders to the Start Menu, but th tutorial below will show you how to be able to.

Unfortunately, you cannot pin files like documents to the Start Menu like that. They are part of Recent Items instead.

For the others, this may help.

and

Control Panel - Pin to Taskbar


Hope this helps,
Shawn

I'm not sure about the other items, but documents and control panel can be placed on the right side of the menu if enabled in Taskbar and Start Properties>Start Menu tab>Customize button.
