    Adding a folder to the Windows 10 Start Menu


    I did this before, but can't seem to duplicate it now.
    I did a Clean Reinstall of Windows 10 not long ago & I am trying to add a folder to the Windows 10 Start Menu. I know I can go to: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs & add shortcuts in this folder to have them show up on the Start Menu; but if I create a new folder, that does NOT show up on the Start Menu. Anyone know how (or where) to add a new folder to the Start Menu?

    Yes, I know I can install Classic Shell, but there is a way w/o using a 3rd-party app; I just can't remember how I did it before.

    :)

    Adding a folder to the Windows 10 Start Menu

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
