    [SOLVED]Moving an All Apps item to the first Start Menu


    I just completed installing 9879 using Brink's instructions on how to do it over Win 7 to get all of my apps included without having to reinstall them! Thanks Brink.

    However I am left with one annoying situation. Wnen I press the Windows key, several of the folders containing my most used apps do not appear but are buried in the "All Apps" screen. I cannot drag those folders to the first screen where I really would like to have them. Is there any way I can move those folders? Or perhaps creating a folder in the first screen and then moving the apps to that new folder?

    Thank you

    Hello JJG10,

    If you like, you could "Pin to Start list" the items you wish from All Apps.

    Once again, Brink to the rescue! Thank you.


    Yes, I thought of that but that would leave me with a bunch of individual items in the Start List. I found the folders containing the items on the C drive and simply pinned them to the Start List. It seems too easy.

    Thanks again
