I am using Classic Start Menu v 3.86 on a Windows 7 platform, and it is configured to display Documents as a menu.  My Documents has been relocated to a network resource in my office LAN, and now the Documents option has disappeared from Classic Start Menu.  Since it is already customized to show Documents as a menu, I don't know how to recover this valuable feature.

Can you access it via the system menu by pressing the 'shift key' while clicking the 'orb'?

Thank you for your comment.  I'm not understanding your question.  The menu I am using is a third-party utility which replaces the Windows 7 start menu.  It is called Classic Start Menu.  www.classicstartmenu.com/index.html   I don't see a system menu or an orb on that menu.

ddantes--Put a shortcut to My Documents in
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs  (That is the Start| All Programs list)  
or in
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu  (That is the list in the left panel when you click Start)
