Q:
Is there any way to include my favorites on my Windows XP Start menu?

A:
I don’t know about you, but I have about a billion favorites and go to my list quite frequently. To do this, I very obviously open my browser (Internet Explorer) and go from there.

I forgot that there is another quicker way to get your favorites without even opening your browser.

First, go to your Start button and right-click it. Left-click on Properties.

You will now see two types of start menus. Note the one that you have.

If the “Start Menu” option is checked, first left-click on Customize.

Left-click on Advanced.

Next look under “Start menu items” and check “Favorites Menu”.

Click on OK, and then click on Apply, and OK again.

This is what it now looks like.

If you have your computer setup with the “Classic Start Menu”, first left-click on “Customize”.

Then look at the list under “Advanced Startup Options” and put a check next to “Display Favorites”. Click on OK, and then click on OK again.

Now when you go to your Start up menu, your Favorites are right there, ready and waiting. : )
