Right Panel of Startmenu

I'm looking to add custum link to custum directories into the right side of my startmenu.
Can someone help me out on this one ?

Thanks a lot.

I don't think you can add "custom" entries, but if you right click on the Start button and choose properties, then click the Customize button and choose Display as a menu.

It actually makes no sense, because all items are listed under your name at the top of the menu, but you still have to add them all for them to appear threre.

You can create any shortcut (even of a folder) and then drag it to the start orb. So I pin any custom items to the left start menu, or simply put them in the Documents folder. :)

I think you can not add a new directory at this place.
But you can change an existing so that it shows a directory. See here.

But you can also pin folders to taskbar - even with a individual icon.
