Windows 7 Tutorial

Create and add a folder in the start menu in Windows 7

By default, the Windows 7 start menu comes with a few default programs listed in it, and a special folder visible at the bottom, called "All Programs". This folder contains a reference (or shortcuts) to the applications that came installed on your computer, as well as programs you have installed yourself. But what if you want to create your own folders inside the start menu, and organize shortcuts your own way? Fortunately, Windows 7 lets you make your own folders right inside the start menu, as we'll explain in this tutorial, and as did previous versions of Windows.
