Create shortcut directly to Start Menu...
....instead of desktop? When I right click a page the 'Create Shortcut' box
asks "Do you want to put a shortcut on your desktop?" I'd like to create one
in the Start Menu. Any way to modify the internet explorer box?

This community is a wonderful resource, thanks an any suggestions.

Drag and drop a copy of the file or folder in question to the start
button and it will appear on the start menu. This link gives a method of
add "Pin to start menu" on your right-click context menu, if you would
prefer that.

Good luck.

In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now
the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Go to Go to C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windo ws\Start

The drag the file there and it will appear in your All Programs group.
