It is not possible to put custom items in that section of the Start Menu.

However as the My Videos folder is typically a sub-folder of My Documents, what you can do is set My Documents up so that it shows a list of files and folders within it and at the top will be My Videos.

To do this, right-click on an empty section of the Task Bar -> Properties. Click Start Menu -> Customize -> Advanced. From here select the Radio button entitled "Display as a Menu" under the My Documents entry, then click OK and OK again.

That area of the Start Menu is a home for system folders - My Computer, My Documents and what not are System Folders. My Videos is not a System folder and therefore it cannot be added to that area of the Start Menu without performing all sorts of recoding of Windows which is illegal under your End User Licence Agreement anyway.

Actually, there is a registry tweak for this, but it's something you'll have to do on your own. It will take some experimenting to get it right so be sure to get a good back up of your registry before you start.

I have not used this tweak and it is definitely not endorsed by this site.
