That's not a property of the folder. It's a property of the start menu. There's a checkbox to turn it on or off.
- Right click on the taskbar
- Choose properties
- Go to 'Startmenu' tab
- Click 'Customize'
- Go to Advanced tab
- Check 'Open submenu's when mouse points to it".
Sorry, this is translated from Dutch. So it's just an approximation of the correct English terms. But I'm sure you'll find it if you search.
I have XP-Pro SP3 and I'm would like to create an active (for lack of a better word,) folder in the Start menu.
I want the folder to automatically open whenever I hover the cursor on it. Then I can click on whatever is in the openned folder.
Currently any folder created or copied to the Start menu openes by double-clicking on it.
