Ummm....How many folders do you have in your music folder? If it is a lot of them it can take a pretty long time to open the first time that you try to.

I prefer not to even worry about using the music folder - windows search bar allows me to find what I want by typing, and 9 times out of 10 I have a music player already started before I go searching for music - so I can just find the track in the player and bypass using the windows start menu for that.

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
