    Normally I can create shortcuts in START menu to a file on local harddrives without any problem.

    However when I want to do this with a file on a volume/network drive which is later (after bootup) mounted then this is NOT possible.

    When I drag a file e.g. from WinExplorer //
    to START menu then it is not accepted and not embedded in START menu.
    Instead while dragging a tiny red "no go" indicator is shown.

    The same applies to shortcuts which are on a TrueCrypt mounted volume.

    How can I create shortcuts otherwise?
