Windows 7: Reorganize start menu

Reorganize start menu

I was wondering if it is possible to reorganize the start menu (not Start Menu / Programs) as I would like to have all the folders like Pictures / Videos etc together below the My Computer and Homegroup etc

Any help appreciated

I don't know if this is what you meant, but you can drag and drop items in the start menu (the one that pops up, not the all programs tab). This reorganizes it i think.

Hope this helps!

If you mean this side; Attachment 24680

Oh I see. Well if you click properties on the Start Menu and then click Customize, you can change how things are displayed. So like the options for Computer become an expandable menu. See:
