    hi !

    whs: "..and then continue dragging the shortcut into the left pane of start and drop it...."

    i tried your tip, but missed reading the text above, and found that it worked without doing it.

    all you have to do is drop the folder on the start-button.

    i havenīt had any good reason to pin a folder to the start-menu, but as i was playing around a bit with the start-menu, i just wandered if it could be done somehow.

    thanks for the tip, alot easier than mine...

    See, we discover new things every day. What would we do all day long without the PC? - LOL
    But there may be a small problem with your method (not sure). With your method it is pinned as "last" to the left pane. Now I have set my temporary entries (recent programs) to zero, where that would be ok, I guess. But if you allow temporary entries, your folder may get "flushed" by more recently used programs. With my method you can pin it higher up into the permanent links.

    hi !

    "...your method..."

    do you mean my own tip or my comment on dropping the shortcut on the start-button ?

    in both cases the folder was pinned at the top, in "permanent links", ABOVE the bar.

    OK, that's good. I was not sure because, as I said, I have zero "recent programs" and was too lazy to change the settings for a test. Now we both learned something. Very good.
