Seemed like such a simple idea, but I can't find anything about it. I want to change the links in my start menu so that instead of linking to "My Documents" it will link to a folder in another hard drive or partition. The most I can find about tweaking the menu is to choose whether certain defaults are displayed at all (i.e. My Docs, My Comp., etc.) or how to change the 'start' label on the menu button. Anyone know how to play with the linked folders?

Thanks :)

Might try looking into Search from Start>Help and Support and enter Start Menu as keyword for a list of subjects.

Thanks, but that just gives me what is already in the Microsoft database online. That tells me how to add/remove items that are already listed (My Computer, Network Places, etc.) in the Advanced menu, but not how to create a link from scratch entirely (i.e. if I were to have something in D:\Include then it doesn't tell me how to make an 'Include' option instead of 'My Documents' - just how to remove 'My Documents').

->I have decided to make a work-around for this instead. But if anyone finds a way to do this, then please let me know.

Still not too clear where you want links, but maybe this will work for you: Select one of the links you want and while holding down the mouse button, drag the link onto your Start button. More info on Start Menu (PDF - requires Adobe Reader).
