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


inthane <inthaneelf@...>
 

I knew that but thanks, I found this out about an hour ago when I had some time to look into it. and I stated that it might have to do with the view used in a prior message as well, way earlier today, as in the second reply to Dave's messages!
I'm a hardware tech, I knew my machines weren't "messed up" and I even mentioned that it might be that view difference in my prior set, but no'o'o'o'o! I'm totally wrong according to a number of folks out here

well they can stuff it

I do have a good idea what I am talking about, and I will research things if there is a definite discrepancy!

HI Inthane,

You don't have messed up XP computers. If you run your start menu in the
Classic menu it doesn't show the pin to start menu option, but if you use
the XP Start menu it will show it. I am speaking of using the classic menu
in Task bar & staart menu properties. Take care.
Mike
