Here is a shortcut I use to keep all of my favorites accessible from my Start menu. I recommend you take advantage of adding new toolbars to your start menu. It is very simple and easy to do. Let's begin.
Right-click on your desktop and choose Toolbars | New Toolbar . . . (Figure A).
Next, choose the folder that you want to appear in your Start menu (Figure B.)
Your custom toolbar now appears in the Start menu. You can use this feature to put all of your favorite folders on your toolbar (Figure C & D).
