I would like to add several folders under the Run command on the
right of the START menu.

I used this tweak (below) of Kelly's to add one folder there. But If
I run this tweak again it replaces the first folder with the new one.

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
180. Add a Folder Under the Run Command {lowersmfolderadd.vbs)

I thought I might be able to make the changes by hand so I tried to
understand the code of the tweak. But I couldn't !!!

Can some please advise. Thank you.

You can't. You are using the OEM's Help link, unused on non OEM computers, of which there is only one.

Hi David, thank you for your reply. You say that Kelly's new START
menu folder is taking over an existing entry but unused entry.

Is it possible for me to assign folders to other entries on the right
hand side of the START menu which I do not normally display?
For example, I do not display these:

My Network Places
Favorites
Printers and faxes
Help and Support
Search
Run

Are any of these reassignable? If so then how?

Thank you.

I really don't know. I saw your message this morning and intended to ring dad and ask him to a motorcycle meeting (as I did last year - he is old and smokes). Well I did ask and got the same answer as last year, "I don't feel like it".

I have only met him once this year and that was with 40 million reporters about (we attended someone's bravery award ceremony) and only had time to say hi. He won't see me cause I use a computer for photography and dad uses camera specific systems (PS this photographer is not my dad http://www.maxcandy.com/ my "max candy" does bonsai trees not girls). And I won't print them and he won't view them on a computer.

Most are. And you understand correctly.

Kelly has some stuff redirecting My Music or something to another purpose. . All the customisable things are under here in the registry
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f0-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}

and the next 8 entries
