Windows 7: Office 2010 Update Created New Start Folder!

Office 2010 Update Created New Start Folder!

I installed Office 2010 Pro Plus (on my Win 7 box) and renamed the Start Menu entry as Microsoft Office 2010. That sub menu has eleven program entries an some additional sub folders.

Today I installed numerous Office 2010 updates. After they installed, there is a NEW Start Menu entry of Microsoft Office with three programs.

Both sets of entries start the same application (as I had customized) but the quesiton is: why did the update create these new Start Menu entries? Will it "hurt" anything to just delete them?

Start menu entries are just shortcuts, you can remove what you dont want.

Hi there,

What are those 3 programs ? As Bill told those are just shortcuts. But it would to be nice to know what those programs are.

Thanks for your reply. I know they are shortcuts - investigation shows the same program but different created/ modified times from my "normal" folder shortcuts.

I'll just delete the unwelcomed mistake caused by the updates.
