Go to C:\Documents and Settings\user\Start Menu - here you can open
a new folder and drag or copy/paste or send to, all the shortcuts that
you wish to put into this folder. I also have files here, for example,
"Graphics" into which I put shortcuts for all my graphic programmes. I
am very happy with this method. Hope this helps. Gillian
I'm not sure if I'm using the proper technical term, but that list of programs that scrolls out after you click "start" and then click on "programs", that thing. Over the years I pretty much just clicked "OK" or "Accept" every time an installing program prompted me a location for it, so the list has become a real mess.
I'd like to organize it a bit like I do my files, a section for video players, one for eBooks, one for picture viewers, one for art & drawing, one for software fluff. Etc. As is the list is so long it's spilt over, so now I see a double-scroll when I click open the program-bar-button-thing. And this is just a little annoying.
Problem is though, I have no idea how to clean it up. I can move the existing folders around, but I can't right click to create new ones. And I'd rather not delete something that might be important. I'd rather create a big "Other" folder, and dump everything that I don't know what it is in there.
I also tried clicking on "Explore" but it only gives me a fraction of all the programs I actually have in the programs bar. Can someone help me with this please?
