Cleaning and organizing 7 Start menu in Windows XP and Vista - Video Tutorial

Hi friends, today's tutorial we will talk about how the Start menu in Windows XP, Vista or 7 and how we organize applications in the Start menu to better use and a quicker release.
We all know that regardless of Windows version used in the Start menu to find all installation applications over time. If you have many applications installed then we certainly will have a very thick and ugly Start menu organized.
A tutorial today to learn how to organize it so that it is cleaner and better organized to allow us to find applications that we want to run the much more rapid.
The Windows Start menu is just a path to a hidden folder on the C drive is full of shortcuts to other folders alone executables of applications. I've seen many users that the comments box asking us how to launch an application if deleted shortcut on the desktop or the Start menu by it? No need to panic! It's very simple. As you probably know well, the applications are installed on the C: \ Program Files. In the folder Program Files folders will find all installed applications in our operating system. Once here, you just need to go into the folder that has the name of the application and find the executable that launches the application. Once identified executable, we right click on it and from the context menu choose Send to: and then Desktop (create shortcut). If I delete folders with application shortcuts from the Start menu or desktop, does not mean I uninstalled or deleted app icon only a few KB which double clicking on it (if it is on the desktop) or a single click (if is in the Start menu) we direct you to the application executable itself.
To accomplish what we wanted, we make visible the hidden files and folders and sail in C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Start Menu.
At this point, we can create new folders you named after categories: Players, Converters, Browsers, Messaging, we can edit and copy them find shortcuts in Programs folder of the Start Menu folder. After we copied shortcuts in folders named after the category, we can delete the original folders that I copied the shortcuts menu and so we have a much cleaner and much more organized you will allow us to easily find the desired application without we lose the multitude of folders that is in the Start menu. Advantage for those with Windows XP will be that they will have a much smaller sub / compact when they go to the All Programs menu. That said, I invite you to watch the video tutorial to see exactly how to do to have a Start menu in Windows, be it XP, Vista or 7 much more organized and clean.

    I searched the whole computer for the problem:
    1 - I put the image backup - nothing
    2 - I did abdeituri to Flasf Player - nothing
    3 - In order to gain some resources, I disabled plugins in Mozilla Firefox, including the antivirus Avast (referred to as brauserul keep clean no tolbar bar to eat me and I Internet resources from RDS)
    4 - all software used, they function deactivated apdeit to resources you will not eat them.
    5 - run the tutorial alone without having any other application open - nothing
    6 - no temp files and even ChaCha does not have anything in it
    7 - defragmentation is the day
    8 - use the same software for years (I have had problems in the past because of them)
    9 - brauserul I do not use any kind of problems (Mozilla)
    10 - YouTube I have no problem watching videos, even in full screen.
    Please analyze this problem and tell me what I can do.

      Right click on any video, then choose Settings from the context menu in the window that appears and then uncheck Enable hardware acceleration. Then click Close and close and reopen your browser. Everything should be OK. If resolved, the fault is the flash player that hardware acceleration is enabled by default and you probably have an older video card that does not support it.

    I liked how you explained in detail and with patience, as it should for those who were for explanations.
    Until recently I was working with XP and using a file with programs arranged like how you explained above but but but not in the Start menu on the bottom bar - and I could have expanded this folder.
    My request is if you can change the Start menu as it was in XP.
    I prefer to have (and) that long list of all the programs in alphabetical order, but in that tiny box in Windows 7 but half the desktop, as it was in XP. If possible I would enjoy more. Thank you.

    Thanks so much for your prompt response. I have recently discovered, but would be delighted by how professional and friendly so we approach things.
    The vast majority of those who use a computer are in need of a prompt and competent advice.
    I, for example with Windows 7 hard making friends, have made many changes for the worse (probably just to be different from XP). I refer in particular to the Explorer. In conjunction with the Start menu, All Programs sorry that bothers me is not right, it can be expanded over the height of the screen and possibly expansion program files. I wish I can bring more to the classic form of XP. If you can that would be formidable!
    Thanks for the article and for helping us so much.
