Windows 7: Add company menu to start menu, how?

Add company menu to start menu, how?


as the question says, I would like to add a menu to the Windows 7 menu which points to a network location.

I've read the tutorials and was able to add a network folder to the programs menu but that's not what I need (it's under a submenu and it just opens the network location instead of working as a menu). Maybe it's possible to solve this problem with classic menu but that wouldn't look very nice...

I would have expected a GPO for this but so far I've found nothing.

So my question is: is there a way to give all my network users access to a menu (much preferred) via the start menu?

And if that's not possible are there any good alternatives? Maybe via a toolbar menu (I haven't found a way yet to set that for all users)?

If you want a nice looking classic start menu, try Classic Shell: You can customize the menu items as you wish. It is also skinnable and you can make it as nice looking as your skills with Photoshop

Hi Ivo,

thanks for the link!

So there is no official way to accomplish this customization? I want to stick as close to the Microsoft supported/supplied options as possible.

Why is the context menu in Start Menu and Taskbar so small? I know that the full version can be achieved while holding the shift key, but is there way to bypass that and have the regular full sized menu by default?
