The Start menu is probably one of the most used Windows tools ever, in fact it is possible to find all the installed apps, folders and recent files, in addition, it allows you to quickly search within your PC or on the Web.
The Start menu has undergone a major restyling that has brought several new features, first of all, now the Start button is in the center, the main screen of the menu has been completely redesigned and it is possible to add various customizations to it.
Indeed, this possibility was also present on Windows 10 and the procedure to be carried out in some ways was quite similar to the one I am about to show you.
The biggest difference concerns the position of the folder icons, which on Windows 10 were positioned vertically, on the left side of the Start menu, on Windows 11, however, they are positioned horizontally at the bottom of the Start menu.
Adding folders to the Start menu
The procedure to be performed to add folder icons to the Start menu is really very simple, here are the steps to perform:
- Log in to “Settings” of Windows, to do so press WIN + I or alternatively right-click on the Start button and then click on the entry “Settings”;
- From the left side menu, click on the entry “Personalization”;
- Click on the entry “Start”;
- Click on the entry “Folders”.
Now you can see the list of all folders that can be added to the Start menu. To add a folder, simply activate the switch next to the name of the folder of your interest.
Note: the voice “Personal folder”offers the possibility to access the following path: C:\Users\[Nome_utente].
Once the various items are activated, the icons will be shown at the bottom of the Start menu, next to the icons “Stop”.
