    Folder access (Vista Home Premium SP1)

    I am rearranging some Start Menu folders, but when moving a particular couple of folders, I get the message: "Destination folder access denied. You'll need to provide administrator permission to move this folder.". When I continue, I get the message: "Destination folder access denied. You'll need permission to perform this action." and cannot continue. The two source folders (both have subfolders containing several program shorctus) came with the computer, and the destination folder is one I created. How can I move the source folders into the destination folder?

    When opening Windows Explorer (either from a shortcut or from the Start>All Programs>Accessories menu, you may have to right click on Windows Explorer and select "Run as administrator".

    Thanks for this suggestion. However, I get the same messages when I do this.

    I have now discovered that this can be done simply by cutting and pasting folders directly in the start menu.
