Hello,

how good are you with programming .NET?

That menu can not be easily configured without involving custom code, since it is one of the core SharePoint functions.

I assume that with "main internet site" you actually mean a site in your local intranet?

If not, can you clarify what you want to link to?

cheers, teylyn

Yea i want to link to a local intranet site on sharepoint. This was created for group and teams sites etc..

with programming .net I would say very minimal

The main thing i'm looking to do is when there on MySite on Team Sites or any other pages I want a quick link going back to the Main Employee Intranet Site. It has to be tied to all pages so this was the only idea I had unless there is another way to do this.

Why not set the main employee intranet site as the browser's default home page? Then, from wherever people are, they can click the home button.

A step by step how to add an item to the welcome menu is here: http://www.bjw.co.nz/developer/sharepoint-2010/102-adding-items-to-the-userwelcome-menu-in-sharepoint-2010

You will need Visual Studio for that, though.
