Look in My Documents Folder which you can put on

your desktop. Go to control Panel, Display, Desktop and under the Picture is Customize Desktop and there is My Documents, check in box and it will be on your desktop. In it is my Music, My Pictures and My Video.
Also, on Menu and Taskbar in Control Panel is Start Menu under Advanced, scroll down to My Documents and check box that says display as a link. It will be in your Start Menu. You may have to reboot. Darrell Lewis

Thanks for replying but it's not what I want.
Let me explain it in other way.

In my Start>Documents I have 2 shortcuts(My documents and My images).

I want to add 2 new shortcuts below those.
It would show as follows:
Start>Documents>My documents
My images
My musics
My videos

Documents in Start menu is not a folder , so i can't drag and drop items. I think it's something related to the registry.

You can't add the same name folder into start menu

It would create a conflict and replace the other same named folder. Since you are using the classic, you can put a different named folder on the desktop, drag it to start and your menu pops up and drag it where you want and drop it there. I had in WINME Defrag sent tht as a shortcut to desktop and did it that way. It was below windows update. Darrell Lewis

I'll do what you say.
I'll remove "documents" and add my own folder

Thank you DarCLew2.
