If I drag and drop an shortcut into the Start Menu (not All Programs) where
can I find the location folder, so that I can later automate adding icons?

Automating the creation of ICONS should be done to the actual directories in
question, not the pretty GUI.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Start Menu

Environment variables are availble for your use.. In a batch script, the
above two lines could be put as the lines below and it will work for each
user...

C:\Documents and Settings\%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Start Menu

I'm referring to the XP Start Menu just above All Programs on the left hand
side which allows drag and drop of shortcuts. Your response adds icons to
Start-->All Programs.

The top left quadrant is the Pin list, and the bottom quadrant is the MFU
list.

There is no programmatic access to the Start Menu Pin list. But here is a
workaround

Great, how about adding a folder or file to the Start Menu List (non-Classic
view)?

Hi Anando,

Yes, I'm aware of that method. I believe the OP wants to automate this
process across several systems. The original query states "so that I can
later automate adding icons". The scripting method does not work for
folders, as the "Pin" verb can't be invoked.

Thanks!

Interesting note here David:

Add the {a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8} to Folders or
AllFileSystemObjects contextmenu.

Press and hold the Shift key and right-click a folder. The "Pin to Start
Menu" appears :-)

Wondering now if there is a possibility of invoking the hidden "Pin to....."
for folders. This does not work.

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace("G:\Windows")
Set objFolderItem = objFolder.ParseName("System32")
objFolderItem.InvokeVerb("P&in to Start Menu")
'objFolderItem.InvokeVerb("Open")

Try the Verb collection and enumerate through it and then do a Doit method if it appears in the list.., although when I'm forced into using the verb collection (on network connection and similar) and issue it wscript usually disappears from memory. No error just disappears. Don't bother I did and it doesn't work.

Sendkeys will work though as one can Shift Right Click (Shift + F10).

Try the Verb collection and enumerate through it and then do a Doit method
if it appears in the list.., although when I'm forced into using the verb
collection (on network connection and similar) and issue it wscript usually
disappears from memory. No error just disappears. Don't bother I did and it
doesn't work.

Sendkeys will work though as one can Shift Right Click (Shift + F10).

Unnecessary incrementation, my mistake. Anyway the extended "Pin" menu does

I just noticed i=+1 at the end of script

Yet the msgbox only shows n times, less than the number of items. I note Explore is hidden. I changed to a safer folder than windir (which gives me 1 more item than system32). Now I'll try a doit on verb 1 (the second which I presume is explore) and it crashes.

set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
set objFolder2 = objShell.Namespace("C:\Documents and Settings\David Candy\Desktop\New Folder")
set objFolderItem = objFolder2.Self
set objItemVerbs = objFolderItem.Verbs
msgbox objItemVerbs.count

For i = 0 to objItemVerbs.count -1
A=objItemVerbs.item(i)
msgbox A
msgbox i
objItemVerbs.item(i),doit
i = i + 1
Next

So 4 is blank (here at least)
