Adding shortcuts within Administrative Tools in W7

On my own systems I customarily put useful but dangerous single items such as Autoruns and Process Monitor into the Administrative Tools group.

Bringing up a new Windows 7 Pro system, I find that it is not possible to establish a new shortcut in Administrative Tools by the old method of locating the folder, right-clicking in it to obtain the context menu, and selecting "New Shortcut".

I'm sure that this is a permissions issue but I don't know how to go about resolving it efficiently and I don't want to blow every permission out of the water hunting for the right procedure.
