  1. Unable to create folder groups on Start Menu [win 10 pro bld 19037.1]


    [ Win 10 Pro build 19037.1; Alienware Aurora R7, additional specs in bio ]

    Hi, IT desktop support user here. I know my way around the ins and outs of most Windows issues.

    I only updated to this Insider build yesterday, and this issue has persisted for a month or more I had just hoped it would be fixed by a later update. However, this issue remains for me, even in a new test user profile, and I cannot seem to find any others concerned about this problem online. Therefore, I thought I'd post here for some thoughts.

    I am unable to drag and drop icons on the Start Menu onto each other to form folders. I can make Groups, no problems, and the system generated a folder of its own (MS Office), and my old folder groups still exist. DISM completes successfully, though it stops at 84.9% when it says this (can't find any info on this issue -- if it *is* an issue -- either). SFC finds no integrity violations.

    Please chime in with any thoughts; I'd appreciate the discourse. Hopefully it's a setting I've forgotten or something I can fix easily in Powershell. Thanks, in advance everyone!

    :)

    Unable to create folder groups on Start Menu [win 10 pro bld 19037.1]

    How to Add Items to "Most Used" menu?


    Hi,
    If you create a folder- call it, say '& My Favourites' - which should put it at the top of the list in the start menu- in
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
    -and put whatever shortcuts you want in it, I would think you would get access to those easily.

    1. Open explorer (Win key + E)
    2. Cut & paste C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu into the address bar
    3. Hit 'Return'
    4. rt click the pane and create a new folder.
    5. Rename it (e.g.) &Myfavourites
    (& makes sure it's at the top)
    6. Put whatever shortcuts you want into the folder.
    7. Close explorer.
    8. Open the Win 10 Start Menu and look for &Myfavourites

    Someone else may have another suggestion for you. Good luck!
