11. Another way to get access to the files and folders you use most often in Vista is to use the context menu. Instead of left-dragging the object to the desired location in the Start menu, right-drag it. When you release the button, select ‘Create Shortcuts Here' from the resulting menu.
12. You can access your most important folders via the Vista menu's right pane. But Microsoft limits the entry options to Documents, Music and so on. To fix this, you should make your special folder an official special folder. First, right-click the Start button and choose Properties, Start Menu, Customize.
13. Scroll down the list of folders and choose an item you don't need. Select Display as a Folder. Right-click the folder you chose in the previous step and select Properties. Click the Location tab and type in the path for the folder to which you want easy access. Click ok. Decide whether or not to copy all your items to the new folder.
14. If all of this sounds like a lot of bother, instead use Vista Start Menu. This replaces the Windows Start menu with a larger and more versatile (but uglier) alternative. You can control which folders and other items appear on the main menu.
