Which .lnk file?

Every item in the Programs menu is actually a file in the "Programs" folder. Most of those files are shortcuts (files with .lnk extension). Find the file that corresponds to the item you need and attach it here.

I actually doubt that the .lnk file is related to the folder handling.

What do you mean? Of course it's related That's the only thing that the start menu has to go by.

This link is for a program called Wink.exe, not a folder. So it can't be expanded. If the program itself shows a folder when you start it, that's its thing and the start menu can't possibly know about that.

Packed the wrong file ... the folder "Wink" where the wink.lnk file is in does not expand.

I don't understand. So is there a problem, or isn't there? If so, I need a copy of the lnk file to examine it.

Also try the Windows start menu and go to the same place in the All Programs directory. See if the wink folder is expandable there.

The folder which does not expand is a folder and not a link file.
In the normal Windows start menu, it works.

Oh, wait! So you are saying that you have a folder, and if you just move the mouse over it the sub-menu doesn't open? And if you click the item the sub-menu opens?
If so - it was already reported but I can't reproduce the problem on my machine. Does it ALWAYS not work for this specific folder, or only SOMETIMES?
