    I am wondering if anyone can help with this problem I am having... for some reason the Start menu.. the portion you can pin programs to, doesnt seem to be working correctly. I thought I found the directory that it uses:

    C:\Users\Raevyn\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu

    but for some reason, any changes I make such as adding or removing a program shortcut, isnt taking effect within the menu itself. Is there any directory that I can make these edits? The problem I have is I want to rename some of them but some wont let me so I thought going to the directory itself would allow that.

    If you right-click the shortcut you have pinned and go to "Properties"- under the "General" tab, at the very top, you can rename it. :)

    I personally make use of toolbars, its a much easier way to open programs and folders. See:
