Organizing TF3D Start Menu
There is another solution to organize your Start Menu better, but its not very convenient as you have to manually change the registry and .
I added folders to my TF3D Start Menu for different categories. When you click on a folder you see the programs that belong to that category, but only in a list, not in the same view as on the Start Menu. See my screenshots to understand better.
Create Folders in Windows\Start Menu\Programs. I used Backup, Configuration, Games, Navigation
Copy the links of the programs you want to have under Backup, Configuration, ... from Windows\Start Menu\Programs into the folder you want to see programs
You need a registry editor to add these folders to your TF3D Start Menu.
The entries are stored under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\HTC\Manila\ProgramLaun cher
You will see there keys named 0 to 23. 0 is for the tab that is on the top left of the start menu, 1 is for the tab in the top middle, 3 is the tab in the second row left side, and so on.
Before you change anything here check on which tabs you want to have the folders in the Start Menu. For me it was 12, 13 and 14.
Open the key that you want to be your folder on. There are 5 entries, (Default)
are the two you have to change.
you enter the name you want to see in the Start Menu, e.g. "Navigation".
you enter the path to the folder, e.g. "\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Navigation"
Close the registry editor and do a SoftReset. Then you will see the folders in the Start Menu.
Additional tips (Not tested by me):
To change the picture of the folder in Start Menu there are 2 possibilities.
Put a file named icon.lnk into the folder. The file should link to the picture. For the games folder it is shelres.dll,-8229.
Put the link to the picture into the registry entry IconPath
The first tabs on your Start Menu are protected. If you want to place something else there, change the registry entry of 0, 1, 2 and/or 3 IsReadOnly
from the value 1 to 0 and you can delete them in TF3D Start Menu and assign other applications to them.
