How To Pin Folders To Windows 7 Start Menu

Tidy up your Windows 7 Start Menu by pinning folders.  This isn’t supported by default in Windows 7, but you add pin folders support to Windows 7 in just two clicks.

This tweak also works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe
  • Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT Folder shellex ContextMenuHandlers and Create a new key (copy everything inside the quotes) ‘{a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}’ with no value
  • To disable, go back and delete this key

If you’re too lazy to do this, then download this file which will add or remove the reghack in two clicks.

Now, to pin a folder just hold down the Shift key and then right-click on the desired folder.
