Thank you Shawn - it works fine doing it as in Option1.

I got Access Denied when I navigated to:
C:\Users\xc7990\Start Menu

Why is that?

As I am the only User, I would like to have complete access and full permissions to everything. How do I arrange that? I got into a muddle when I used the Sharing tabs and had to Restore (message said "conflicting" and "unstable").

You're welcome Fred.

Even as an administrator, you will just need to open any other user account's folder and allow permission when prompted first. Afterwards, you will be able to access the user's folders without issue.

I have a variation on this issue which doesn't appear to be covered here; I hope someone can help me with it. In Windows 7, I understand how to pin programs I use most often (and only those) to the left side of the start menu. However, in WinXP, I was also able to pin a FOLDER to the same part of the start menu, containing shortcuts to programs I use frequently but less often - essentially a 'half way house' between my 'most often' list and 'all programs'. Opening that folder gave me a sub-menu of my 'tier 2' programs. Is there any way to do that (or something equivalent) in Windows 7?

Hello bphil, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the tutorial below to enable pinning folders to the Start Menu, but they won't have expandable menus though. It'll only open the folder when clicked on.

Start Menu - Pin or Unpin a Folder, Drive, and Library

If you wanted to add expandable folders on the Start Menu, then you might see if the free program Start Menu X (aka: Start Menu 7) may work for you for this instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
