There should be an easy way to create directories or sub-directories in the All Programs Menu. I already tried the Help in XP Pro & a number of forums with no luck.

Could some one either guide me through it or post a link w/ the info please?

Here's the way I do it.

Click on My Computer from your desktop.
Open Drive C.
Click Documents and Settings, then my user name.
Open Start Menu/Programs.

Create a new folder, give it a name. Example: Media Players. Open it.
You will not see everything that is on the start menu in the Programs folder.
Click on Start, drag your program from the Start Menu and drop it in the folder you created and opened.
Anything that shows up in Programs canned be moved to the new folder.

I don't like a cluttered Start Menu. Using the method above, I created Media Players, Office Apps, Utilities, etc. folders
and put programs in the appropriate folder.
They show up in All Programs, keeping it from getting to cluttered.
