    Freeware to replicatge WinXP ability to pin a hierarchical menu tothe Windows 7 Start Menu

    Is there Windows 7 freeware to pin a hierarchical menu to the Start Menu?
    WinXP Example:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/9828713...8634/lightbox/

    Specifically, if you try pinning a folder of related shortcuts to the
    start menu it can only be accessed as a folder, not as a menu. Is there
    any way to restore the old functionality of the Start Menu?

    FOR REFERENCE:
    The default WinXP shortcut menus are located here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\
    C:\Documents and Settings\(user)\Start Menu\Programs\

    On WinXP, I can easily create a shortcut menu by adding a folder
    called whatever (let's call it "menu") to this hierarchy:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\menu\
    Where "menu" is the top of a functional hierarchy of directories
    which end with shortcuts to programs at the lowest level.

    However, I'm having trouble replicating this on Windows 7.

    On Win7, the default shortcut menus are located at:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\
    C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\ Start Menu\Programs
    \Startup\

    But, when I put a directory in those locations, that directory
    does not show up as a menu in the Windows 7 Start Menu.
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\menu

    Q: Is there freeware that replicates the WinXP ability to pin a
    hierarchical menu to the Start Menu GUI?

    Note:
    On Win7, I already set the Folder Options (Control Panel->Folder Options-
    >View tab->Display Hidden Files and folders and Show Protected Operating

    System files.

    Note:
    The reasons for a functionally organized shortcut menu is obvious; while
    the reasons for that menu being separate from the default menus are:
    a. It's (much) easier to maintain & replicate a menu which is unpolluted
    b. It's easier for others to see the default (cluttered) Start Menu
    c. Rarely, but possibly, the additional links in the grossly polluted "All
    Programs" menu come in handy (e.g., additional uninstall links, readme
    links, doc links, setup links, update links, sister program links, etc.)

    I think you have to put the folder in Start-Programs first and then Pin
    it to the Start menu

    OOOps. I posted the wrong screenshot! Sorry.

    Here is the correct screenshot:
    http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3674/9...19507cea_o.gif

    If I put a folder in the WinXP start menu, it "acts" like a menu; but if I
    pin a folder on the Win7 start menu, it acts like a folder (which nobody
    wants).

    Q: What software makes a Start-Menu folder act like a menu in Windows 7?

    I tried that before I even posted.
    No matter *where* I put the "menu" folder,
    when it gets pinned to the Windows 7 start menu,
    it acts like a folder, and not like a menu.

    I can't be the first person to ever want a menu outside
    the grossly polluted (and constantly re-polluted) Start Menu,
    so, there *must* be an existing solution to this simple problem.

    But what?

    Here's what I do; and it works.

    Create a folder on the desktop; put shortcuts into it.
    Drag it to the Start Orb and then up the menu as it opens, into Programs.

    You'll then find it in
    C/Users/{uname}/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/Windows; together with all the
    other things.

    Yes, but one of the reasons things work the way they do, is
    due to the customization mechanism. Desktop.ini contains
    information about whether a folder is special or not.

    Check whatever is used for a regular menu folder. Open the
    desktop.ini if one is present, and see what info is in there.
    That's how I would start.

    Just dropping a folder somewhere, doesn't guarantee the customization
    info is inherited.

    For example, on my WinXP machine, above the Program Menus folder

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    LocalizedResourceName=@shell32.dll,-21786

    Then, the Desktop.ini inside the Programs folder. This
    all has to mean something.

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    LocalizedResourceName=@shell32.dll,-21782
    [LocalizedFileNames]
    Remote Assistance.lnk=@%systemroot%\system32\rcbdyctl.dll ,-152
    Internet Explorer.lnk=@xpsp1res.dll,-11001
    Outlook Express.lnk=@xpsp1res.dll,-11004

    The Desktop.ini inside Accessories.

    [LocalizedFileNames]
    Windows Explorer.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-22067
    Command Prompt.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-22022
    Notepad.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-22051
    Synchronize.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll ,-22062
    Tour Windows XP.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\tourstart.exe,-1
    Program Compatibility Wizard.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\compatUI.dll,-115
    Address Book.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-22017
    [.ShellClassInfo]
    LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell 32.dll,-21761

    The Shell32 on that OS, plays a big part. Perhaps Win7 has
    some mechanism like that.

    Hmmm... I just researched "Classic Shell", but is that the same or
    different than "Classic Start Menu"?

    The reason it may matter is that all I want to do is add a cascaded
    menu to the Windows 7 start menu.

    If I load "Classic Shell", it seems that this will change (potentially)
    my entire shell environment (which isn't what I want to do).

    Googling, to see if a "Classic Start Menu" exists, I see that it
    does, and that it is payware:
    http://www.classicstartmenu.com

    Is that payware what you are using to add a custom menu to the Windows 7
    start menu?

    Hi Ed,
    If only it were that easy!

    When I do that, and John tested it also, the result is that the added
    menu item doesn't cascade like a menu. It simply opens up a folder.

    So I have to ask whether your Win7 result opens up as a folder or if
    it cascades into a menu, as shown in my WinXP screenshot below:
    http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3674/9...19507cea_o.gif

    What we want is to have a cascading menu like that, not a folder.

    Q: Does your solution cascade? Or does it open to a folder?

    It opens up exactly the same as the Win7 norm. Is that what you mean by
    "simply opens up a folder"?

    If you do, then what you want is Classic Shell to give you the old
    XP-style look;
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/classicshell/

    It's a question of looks rather than functionality. Each requires the
    same number of clicks to get to what you want. Personally I've grown
    fully accustomed to the Win7 look.

    What I mean by "simply opens up a folder" is that it simply
    brings you to the Windows Explorer GUI, at the level of that
    folder.

    For example, if I put "menu" in "c:\a\b\c\menu", and if "menu"
    has subdirectories {archivers,browsers,editors, etc.},
    and in those subdirectories, there are shortcuts to their
    respective programs {IZArc.exe,firefox.exe,Irfanview.exe,etc.},
    then I expect a single mouse button press to navigate through
    all those hierarchies and to open up the executable.

    That's what I refer to as a "cascaded menu" (just like what
    you see in this WinXP screenshot:
    http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3674/9...19507cea_o.gif

    If, instead, when you click on "menu", you end up with the
    Windows Explorer, and then you have to click a second time on
    editors, and then a third time on "picture editors", and then
    a fourth time on "Irfanview.exe", then that is what I mean by
    opening up as a "dumb folder".

    The difference is immense. Most notably, one click versus four
    clicks for every single program that you wish to run.

    I'm shocked that Windows 7 is a step backward from Windows XP
    in usability, at least in this critical single piece of usability.

    It's like buying a brand new car, and it doesn't even have a
    cigarette lighter socket to run your accessories.

    Just hit the Start Orb and type "Irf". Did XP have that? No.
    The cascaded menus were a bit of a pest. They spread all over the place,
    sometimes on the right, sometimes on the left. And then they had the
    habit of suddenly disappearing without warning.

    Get used to the new style. It's better.

    No additional software is necessary. However, the hierarchical menu is
    on the right hand side of the start menu, rather than on the left.

    We've had that capability since at least Windows 95.
    At least, I've been doing that since Microsoft created
    the concept of the registry.

    For example, if Irfanview is located in:
    C:\apps\editors\image\irfanview\Irfanview.exe

    Then, I simply typed "irf" at the Start->Run line:
    Start->Run->irf
    And, up came IrfanView.

    The trick was simply to add this value to the registry key:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\
    irf.exe = c:\apps\editors\image\irfanview\Irfanview.exe

    As per this Microsoft Windows XP knowledge base:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=vs.85%29.aspx

    In fact, since Win95, I've kept a registry file that defines,
    in a single button click, any number of quick keystrokes, e.g.,
    pdf ==> run adobe acrobat writer
    pdfr ==> run adobe acrobat reader
    ttax ==> run turbo tax
    tax ==> view latest tax pdf
    irf ==> run IrfanView
    url ==> run Firefox
    url google ==> run Firefox and feed it the google home page
    nntp ==> run Agent newsreader
    calc ==> run calculator (this was built in)
    clipbrd ==> open the clipboard (this was built in)
    clean ==> run ccleaner
    mail ==> run thunderbird
    network ==> run ifconfig
    etc.

    Today I hope to get back to this, as I had to re-install Windows 7 multiple
    times, and today I'm re-installing it again (due to RAID errors and then
    again due to 32-bit vs 64-bit problems).

    I hope we can find a *simple* solution to the simplest of all acts, which
    is merely to create a cascading menu in Windows 7 such as these below
    in Windows XP (which came from Windows 2000 & Windows 95 prior).

    Simple physical hierarchy *outside* the Microsoft-polluted ones:

    The main point is to maintain *simplicity* by avoiding Microsoft
    complexity. (I'm constantly amazed that nobody with a clear head
    seems to work at Microsoft - if I worked there - I'd put a stop to
    this nonsense!).

    Simple really. Build the cascading folder structure, grab the top folder
    you created, drag and hold over start button, when it opens hover over
    All Programs, when All Programs opens, drop it. You don't "Pin it"
