I saw the screenshot, and I think the menu looks like a complete mess.

Y'all are referring to the Vista Start Menu app? It is highly customizable. The samples on the web page are based on a direct translation of the default manner in which most apps write themselves to the Windows start menu - which I stomp on. I use a highly structured Start Menu and it fits nicely into the Vista Start Menu Pro. My start menu has entries like:

Admin, Office, AV Audio, AV Graphics, AV Video, Tools HDD, Tools ODD, Reference, DeskTop...

Another option I have used to "correct" the Windows Start Menu - ObjectDock Plus.

The author does not merchandise his product very well. Y'all are judging a book by its cover - and it is a poorly designed cover on a rather nifty book. The app does have it's problems, but lack of customization and usability is not one (sic) of them.

Thanks, I will give it a go.
My start menu is highly organized too, so maybe it will work for me.

I'll let you know.

Well, came to the conclusion it's not for me, after playing around with it for a few minutes.

I like the menu to show only the things I use often.
This program by default shows everything, plus it takes up 60% of the width of my 15,4" laptop screen.

But I can see how it could be very useful for others.

I would like to be able to do the exact thing the OP asked.
To be able to add a custom item in the right side of the start menu.
Must be a registry key for sure.
