    I want to place some .bat shortcuts in the start menu. Not in Programs, but in the first area with no folders. I know that you can click on "Pin to Start Menu" to do this.

    However, with a batch file or its shortcut, this option is not available. So, either I have to find a folder, or a reg entry or some other way to place these batch shortcuts there.
    thanks

    The answer I found that solved my problem was to create a shortcut to the batch file and then right clicking and opening the properties tab and in the "Target" space add cmd.exe /C just before the path that is in quotation marks.


    And, for posterity, this is where those actual shortcuts are stored

    C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
