How can I add a submenu to the start menu in Windows 7?
In the right-click menu on a shortcut under “All Programs”, there is a “Pin to Start Menu” entry. That's exactly what I want, but it only appears for shortcuts, not for folders. It can be made to appear for folders, but what it creates in the start menu is a shortcut to open the folder in Explorer, and not a submenu.
I know how to do it in Windows XP: create a directory under the
Start directory in my profile. Windows 7 has a similar-looking directory in
AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu under my profile. But if I add a directory there under Windows 7, it shows up in the “All Programs” submenu and not in the start menu itself!
So, how can I add a folder (not a shortcut) to the start menu (not an existing submenu such as “All Programs”)? Or if there's some other way to create a submenu at the same location as the pinned items (or anywhere in the Start menu, really), what is it?
