add custom start menu strip to view folder contents

hey all,

can i add a custom start menu strip that will simply let me view the contents of a folder? what i'd like is exactly what you get when you click "video library" under "pictures & videos," for example.

thanks!

You can pin a folder to the start menu - see here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...in-folder.html
You can also make a toolbar with folder shortcuts.
