  1. Lost the ability to rearrange folders pinned to the start menu.


    I just tried to rearrange all the things I have pinned in my start menu and came to realize that it's impossible for me to move folders pinned to Start. I can move around pinned apps and programs without any problem, but if I pin My Documents, Recycle Bin or any other folder, they can't be moved within the Start Menu. i can drag them, but they will never stick to the place where I put them, always going back to the original place. Is this a bug only I am experiencing, or is it happening to everyone else?

    Pin the apps you use most often to the Start menu. Here's how:

  4. Lost the ability to rearrange folders pinned to the start menu.

    How to pin shortcut to start menu.

    At first, you can create a shortcut in your Programs folder
    (in a hidden folder C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs). The shortcut appears in
    All apps list. Then you can pin it to Start menu / Taskbar as Mayank Gupta10 suggested.

    The common way is to create a shortcut on the Desktop.
    But the more elegant way is creating Custom toolbars.
