Re: Adding items to Start Menu... another way

Strange. I'm running XP, and I have that option in the context menu. For example, go to JFW.exe in the freedom scientific folder in the programs folder. Hit the applications key. The 1st item should be "open". Down arrow and the next option is "run as". Down arrow once more and the 3rd item is "pin to start menu".

Hi Dave,

In XP there is not a, pin to start menu, option in the context menu. At
least I have never seen that option on my computers. Also, not everybody
has a, start menu, option in their, Send To, folder. At least, I didn't &
had to add it. Take care.
Mike

Again, not sure why you're doing so many steps for such a simple
operation.
I know some folks like to take the scenic rout when they travel, but
there's
nothing to see here. Just go to the item you want to add, press
applications, and use the pin to start menu command. done.
