On windows 7, when you hover over the start icon, I see menus for Documents, Media, Pictures, Control Panel etc.

Can I add a document there that maps to a folder?


Say I have a folder in the file system


I want to link to mystuff, and then have it expand and show blah,... (I have already set my menus to auto expand)

to add custom links to the right pane of the start menu you'll need a 3rd party application (e.g. WindowBlinds)
