    How can I transfer a shortcut or application icon from the desktopto the start menu

    I can't find any way to copy an icon for a shortcut or application on
    the desktop (or the file list) to the Start menu. Does anyone know of one?

    Thanks
    JIm

    Hello jigo,

    Right-click the "start" button and choose "open". The folder that opens
    contains all the start-menu stuff. You can than drag or copy any link into
    it that you want.

    Hope that helps.

    Assuming you XP Login Name is "Jigo"

    Your StartMenu is...

    c:\Documents and Settings\Jigo\Start Menu\Programs

    Just copy and Paste there.

    Better yet:

    %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu

    That "%USERPROFILE%" will expand to the settings-folder of the current
    logged-in user. Even on installations where that folder isn't located on
    the (default) C: drive. :-)

    (also notice the absense of the "\Programs" part. The OP asked to put
    something into the "start menu")

    Regards,
    Rudy Wieser

    P.s.
    OP, you can even create a new folder there (Like that "Programs" folder),
    into which you can also put shortcuts of your liking.

    P.p.s.
    For other environment variables like that "%USERPROFILE% just open a
    console/command window and type "set"

    Absolutely !

    Using the %USERPROFILE% environmental variable greatly simplifies this as it
    points to the user's location explicitly.

    Left-click the item once to highlight it, then right-click and while holding the right-click, drag it
    down to the "Start" button. Hold it there until the start menu opens, then slowly drag it to the correct
    location, release and select "Create Shortcut Here".

    Many programs will temporarily appear on the start menu when you run
    them. This is one of several Windows MRU (Most Recently Used) functions.
    Simply click the "start" button, right click the shortcut and click "Pin
    to Start Menu".

    You can organize shortcuts on the "All Programs" menu by right clicking
    the start button and clicking "Open" or "Explore" on the resulting
    context menu. You can drag or right drag shortcuts to the "Programs"

    You can also set the task bar to show the Quicklaunch menu and drag
    shortcuts to it. Note that unless you have reversed your mouse button
    settings a left drag moves a shortcut (IF source and destination are on
    the same drive/partition) while a right drag offers a context menu with
    options to move OR copy the shortcut. The Quicklaunch menu is an
    additional list of shortcuts that, when enabled, normally appears next
    to the "start" button. If you have more than a FEW shortcuts on the
    Quicklaunch menu you might need to click the little ">>" at the end to
    see the full list.

    The task bar also has an option to show a "Links" menu that's a good
    place to put a small quantity of "favorites" (shortcuts) for web pages.
