Restoring The Traditional Folder Listings In Windows 7

Some of the commands that populated the Start menus of previous Windows versions no longer appear in the Start menu of Windows 7. Microsoft is trying to make Windows look less overwhelming.
But if you miss some of the old folders—Favorites, Printers, and the Run command, for example—it’s easy enough to put them back. Here are the simple steps that will get you back to the traditional folder listings.

  • Right-click the Start menu.
  • From the shortcut menu, choose  Properties.

In the scrolling list (as shown in the above screen shot), you’ll find checkboxes and buttons that hide or show all kinds of things that can appear in the right column of the Start menu: Computer, Connect To, Control Panel, Default Programs, Documents, Favorites, Games, Help, Music, Network, Pictures, Printers, Run, Search, and System Administrative Tools . Click OK twice to return to the desktop and try out your changes.
