    Default Can't delete or add any items to start menu

    Can't delete or add any items to start menu. When I installed Vista I was able to do it but then I must have locked the start menu somehow. When I click with the right button on the item I want to delete no popup menu is shown. Drag and drop methot doesn't work either. Any idea what could help? Thanks

    You have two option to do that...find yourself as comfort for you !!!

    1-Way )
    Goto Taskbar and Start Menu properties and jump to Start Menu tab
    Here select your start menu type and click on Customize
    In the behavior list of Start menu, look for Enable context menus and dragging and dropping
    Check this and Apply to commit chnages

    2-Way)
    Open Registry Editor (Type regedit in Run dialog box n hit enter)
    Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer

    look for a DWORD value titled NoChangeStartMenu and change its value to 0 to remove the restriction.
