I've put several folders in the Start Menu folder, at the same level as
the Programs folder. They appear at the very top of the first window
that appears when I click "start". I didn't do anything special to get
them there, other than respond to a bunch of annoying elevation and
Could it depend on the version of Vista? I'm running home premium.
Are you using an administrator account? That might make a difference.
To put folders in the Start Menu folder, I right-click the start button
and select "explore all users". Then I just copy/paste them where I
want them. Vista asks for permission for each move, of course.
