Custom Libraries is Start Menu?

Hey all, in Win7, I usually create another 2 custom libraries to suit my data. I can't seem to find a way to add them to top right of the start menu along with Music, Pictures and Videos.

Is there a way to do this?

Here's a way to add one more:

Add "Recorded TV" to the list, remove the default location and add your own using the "Include a folder" button. Then, rename it to whatever you want.

I think I know what you mean. Right click your taskbar go to properties, start menu, customize and choose whatever folder then display as link or menu.
