I have items pinned to my start menu.
I'm OK with right-clicking to unpin those.
But, I'd be a lot happier if I knew where I could modify the location of those items on my own.
For example, I might want to unpin something from the start menu and put it somewhere else. I don't seem to be able to do this in Windows 7: pinned items aren't simply lnk files.
I've found this folder, which contains some of the shortcuts that are pinned to my start menu:
C:\Users\*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned
If I right-click on a file and choose "pin to start menu" a shortcut is added to this folder. If I right-click and choose unpin on the start menu, it removes the shortcut from this folder. But, if I just delete the shortcut from this folder, the item remains pinned (but now broken) on my start menu. But, this folder does have some extra utility for me because I can copy a shortcut out of it to some other location, which I can't do to the item pinned to the start menu.
The thing is, I have other items that I pinned to the start menu that are not in this folder.
Where are they? I'd like to be able to find the shortcut for one of them and put a copy of it somewhere.
I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but the file in question is a batch filed *.cmd that is in my root directory. I use it reconnect network drives when there is a crash. The way I would have gotten this on the start menu in the first place is with a shift-right-click. Does any of this make a difference?
