:whistling: I am so embarrassed to have to ask this:
On my Windows98 oper sys I went in and put folders titled things like games, online games, picture programs, office programs, audio programs, etc and so on in the all programs area of the start menu and I used sub-folders so that the children would know what was what. Then I put the programs into the new folders to organize the all programs area. On Windows xp I have not been able to figure out how to do that. I have searched windows help and online, and also in your forum. I must be searching incorrectly, as I am sure I am not the only person who wants to do this, or I may be the only dummy who can't figure it out on their own. If you could help me I would love it. Thanks :blink:

Hi allen31540,

No need to be embarrassed, we all need to ask questions at sometime or another. :whistling:

In XP create the new folder in this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs

The All Users ensure that it appears in everyone's start menu if you have more than one users account.

In the C:\Documents and Settings folder you should also have a folder for each user name. You may have to drag some of the program links from the folder with your account name.
