I love the ability to type any phrase into the start menu, and Windows 7 will bring up relevant executables under Program Files.
However, I have a separate folder of my own where I store several portable applications - usually small apps that run straight out of an unzipped folder with little dependency. I have all of these under a specific hard-coded location - "PortableApps", but I would really like to tell the start menu to search this folder as well as Program Files for executables when searching. The search is often clogged because the executables I'm looking for are classified under "Documents" in the search results and buried in other non-related files.
Is there a way I can achieve this in Windows 7?
Thanks for any suggestions - Chase
