Quick question about tasks on the start menu.

Hello all,

I'm new here but have been lurking for a while, i have a question about adding tasks to some pinned start menu items. Is there a way to add your own to them? I noticed IE is the only one on my list that has the little arrow next to it to open a new tab or an in-private browsing window. I ask because i use custom firefox builds and they don't have an installer so i just pin the exe to the start menu and i want to add some tasks to it. Thanks in advance.
