How to Pin Folder or Directory to Start Menu in Windows 7

April 29, 2010 by  
Filed under Windows 7

By default Windows 7 allows you to pin shortcuts and programs to start menu and taskbar. We have previously shared with you a tip on how to trick Windows allowing you to pin a folder to taskbar. The same thing goes for pinning in start menu where you can simply right click on any shortcut or the program itself and you will see “Pin to Start Menu”. Fortunately if you want to pin a folder to Start Menu, it is way easier than pinning to taskbar because all you need to do is drag the folder to the Windows 7 orb button and it will be pinned.

There is a registry hack where it enables the right click “Pin to Start Menu” option to any files or folders. The right click will have to be combined with a SHIFT button which will force the Pin to Start Menu to appear on restricted files or folders to pin on start menu. The registry changes is as follow:

1. Click the Windows 7 orb button and type regedit at the Search proigrams and files bar and hit enter.

2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\

3. On the left pane, right click on the ContextMenuHandlers folder and select New > Key

4. Name the key as {a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}

5. Now press and hold the SHIFT key while you right click on a folder. You will notice the “Pin to Start Menu” option is available in the right click context menu.

To unpin a folder or item from the Start Menu, right click on it and select “Remove from this list”. If you press SHIFT key while right click, you will get to select “Unpin from Start Menu”.

Windows 7 is the latest operating system by Microsoft. It has gotten many praises but for corporate users, there is one big concern which is whether the current application has any compatibility issues or not.

Microsoft and ChangeBASE are working together to offer you a simple online solution that assesses and automatically remedy applications for Windows 7 compatibility at the press of a button. This solution uses a subset of the full AOK tool from ChangeBASE, a market leader in automated application compatibility and remediation software. AOK4SMB is an application compatibility tool developed to help small and midsize businesses to get their applications ready for Windows 7.

All you need to do is create a free account and then upload your MSI package to the server which will be analyzed automatically. After a few minutes, a report will be emailed to you and if there is an automated fix available, AOK4SMB will supply a fix for your MSI package as a transform file. The fix will come in a zip file with a .cmd , .mst and .cab file. Just put all of the 3 files together with your MSI file and run the .cmd file which will transform it and apply the Windows 7 compatibility fix. This service will be free until end of July 2010.

There are many URL shortening services that can be used for free to transform really long URL into a very short one. Some of the popular ones are bitly, tinyurl, goo.gl and etc. As useful as it is, sometimes these URL cloaking services can be annoying because you could end up opening the same website that you’ve opened before since you don’t know the original URL until you open it.

If you are a Google Chrome user, the good news is you can install a small extension called View Thru which is able to decode the shortened URL and show a small popup preview of the full URL together with the page title. View Thru currently supports bit.ly, cli.gs, ff.im, goo.gl, is.gd, nyti.ms, ow.ly, post.ly, su.pr and tinyurl.com. After installing the View Thru extension, there is nothing to configure or do. Just browse the web as normal and if you see any shortened links, simply move your mouse cursor over it and a tooltip will appear.

Decode Short URLs

The best place to test whether it is working for you or not is Twitter. Since all links that are posted in twitter will be shortened, you will definitely find some there because there are new tweets every seconds.
