I would like to have a menu of shortcuts on my Start menu, which will hold a number of miscellaneous utilities and tools. To accomplish this, I did the following.
1. Created a folder name Urb Quickies in Windows Explorer
2. Ctrl-drag the folder to the Start button and hover
3. After Start menu pops up, continue dragging to the upper left area and drop
4. Add shortcuts to this folder
PROBLEM: When I hover over this folder on the Start menu, the contents don't automatically pop-up as happens for the other submenu folders, such as My Recent Documents or Favorites.
I've looked at the properties of my custom folder, Urb Quickies and the Favorites folder, and I can see no differences in properties.
When I examine the Start menu properties by right-clicking on the Start button, then selecting properties, I see the following.
o Start menu (non-Classic) is selected
o Customize-->Advanced shows that 'Open submenus when I pause on them with my mouse' IS CHECKED.
The 'open submenu on hover' works on everything except my custom folders. On my older Win2K laptop, this works as I want it to.
Is there some registry setting that I need to change to allow auto-hover operation on custom folders on the start menu.
