Windows 7: Showing contents of folder pinned to Start Menu?

Showing contents of folder pinned to Start Menu?

Is there any way to have the contents of a folder that I have pinned to the start menu show up in a sub-menu of the folder icon? I have several tools that I use on a daily basis that I would like to have easy access to. Pinning then all individually would not be ideal, so I figured this would be the best way, but I can't figure out how to show the contents of my folder.

Thanks!

Hello Sublimnl, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might consider creating a toolbar with the folder on the taskbar instead like in this Quick Launch tutorial. Just substitue your folder path instead. This way you can have it expand how you wanted.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Sorry, but not other than manually copying each sub folder there as a shortcut under the folder in the All Programs Area as well.

I'm not sure if this is what you meant when you said pin to Start Menu, but you can also pin a folder to the Start Menu pin to area to quickly open the folder. You still will not have the subfolders display there.
