Hi Mouser.

I have an idea that might be useful for a number of your program's users. I have seen that each one of them has a particular entry in Start Menu (e.g. ProcessTamer for Process Tamer), but I think it could be more useful to have all your programs grouped in a single folder in Start Menu (e.g. MouserSoftware\ProcessTamer). Sometimes I have to look after a certain program created by you in Start Menu (which is very large in my case) and it would be more easy to have all your programs in a single place, especially considering the fact that I use a large number of your applications.

Thanks,
bgd77

P.S. Your programs are one of the best I have seen. Thank you for them and thank you for giving them freely. I really appreciate your hard work.

thank you for the kind words.
i wish i had done that from the beginning.. you're right that it makes things cleaner.
i'm just hesitant to change now with so many installations in the wild.

I know there would be some very hard work to do this and there are a lot of things to take into consideration. If you ever decide to try it, I would be more than happy to be a pre-pre-pre-release tester. Just give me a sign.  Wink

Thanks lanux128!  Thmbsup

I just managed to do that. I created a new folder (but I named it "MouserSoftware") in "All Users" folder start menu and moved in it all the folders related to the programs created by mouser.

And it worked!  smiley  They are all in one folder and there are no functionality problems.

Probably he didn't, but maybe there is a way to fix this. Anyhow, it is a minor issue and, if it requires too much effort, it would be better to leave it as it is.
