    Do you mean more than just adding a shortcut to your favourite programs?

    You mean you want to right_click on your desktop and get a menu that leads directly to a list of your favourite programs?

    PS: if you reply to me rather than yourself, not only do I get a notification of your reply but the thread may make more sense to others - click on the <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/reply.gif> button at the top of the post you are replying to! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I've never come across anything that will do that - not to say that it isn't possible!

    I believe there is something that will add a menu to your taskbar, if that would be an option? - maybe someone remembers....

    Is QuickLaunch not suitable?

    Have you looked at what can be opened when you "Right click" the desk top and then select "New"?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    You can make the Quick Launch toolbar as narrow as possible. It will display a little button that pops up the rest of the toolbar - very convenient.

    another reason i want it to be a right click menu is so that it cannot be changed by other users of the pc

    Prepare yourself for a major programming effort, involving Windows API functions... I can't help you with that.

    Perhaps the Context Menu Extension DLL from http://www.softmajor.com helps?

    Take a look here. But play with the registry at your own risk. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>
