not exactly what your wanting, but there is Meta Launcher. To get what your wanting, you would have to use something like Meta Launcher and just completely change the start menu.

Not what you're after (exactly) but Vista Start Menu and True Lauch Bar will accomplish much of what you desire and both come in freeware (though functionally limited) versions.

Have a look at NirExt. The "Create Shortcut+" option is what you want.

QuickMenu is another alternative. The page is in Japanese but there is an English version for download.

You could also rigtclick start button and select "Open All Users", create a new folder and add shortcuts there. For a customized look, rightclick on the new folder and select customize... See pic.

Hey PhilB66, thanks for telling us about QuickMenu. Surprisingly, I've never heard of it before! It has some excellent features and is superior to some similar shareware software.

That's really nice and simple! I really do like the simple ways!

How about something even simpler?

Like adding it Here?



To your Start button's context menu.


This will do it for you

In a fully configurable fashion ;)

Choose anything you want & even get ideas for more!


Enjoy,
