Making Folders

by spiritdancer59 / October 12, 2008 6:31 AM PDT

Could someone tell me how to make folders in the Start: All Programs on Vista Home Edition. I have a Sony Vaio laptop. Havent had it very long ( maybe 2 months now) and this is my first time with Vista. My Start: All Programs is getting kinda full and I would love to be able to make folders ( such as a Utility folder) to put the shortcuts of like apps into, but I havent been able to figure it out or to find any place that tells how to. Like I said I am new to Vista and am still learning all about it.

Looks to be the same

Looks to be the same as every version of Windows since Windows 95. Among other possible methods, right click on the start button, which now looks like a blue orb with the Windows logo on it, and select either Open or Open All Users.

after browsing to the right folder. It's just a folder somewhere in your profile (and in the All Users profile).
