I have a a few folders that I use the most, these folders are already pinned to the task bar, added to the desktop and to the left bar in the explorer.

But I want to add these folders to the start menu search.
I want that when I press win and type 'localhost' that my localhost folder shortcut pops up.
I tried adding folder shortcuts to C:\Users\Me\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
It didn't work. :(

Anybody got any ideas? thnx

Do the folders not show up in the Documents section of the search? – Bali C Nov 7 '12 at 9:48
I've disabled the index of the public folder, I don't want the content of those folders to show up, just the folders. – janw Nov 7 '12 at 10:15

I ended up doing this.

I went to configuration-> indexoptions. There I added only the a folder which has all the schortcuts I need, and the startmenu folder itself.
After that in the advance tab I added .ink to the file types. Now it also indexes shortcuts.

Works like a charm.
