Windows 7 - Windows XP Mode

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I have Windows 7 Professional with 64bit.
Some aplications dont work in this environment, so I installed Windows XP Mode. I see that if you install the software in this windows, then you see application shourtcouts also in Windows 7 Start menu under XP Mode.
My problem is that I only want to use Internet Explorer in Windows XP mode as Windows XP Mode Applications. How can I run this shourtcouts directly from Windows 7?
Also some applications dont have install/setup programs so I only have shourcouts on desktop in Windows Xp Mode and therefore I dont see them under Start menu in Windows 7.

Please help! Thanks!
