Drag and Drop Items in Start Menu

Windows XP allows you to drag and drop items on the Start menu.

For example: let's say you are working on a document. You want that document to appear on the Start menu so you can easily access it while you are working on it. No problem, just drag and drop the document on the Start button. This creates a 'shortcut' to your document, it does not actually move the document to the Start menu, but just creates a shortcut to it. If you can't drag and
drop items, then you simply need to turn on the drag and drop feature.

To turn on dragging and dropping on the Start menu, follow these steps:

1. Right-click the Start button at the lower-left corner of your screen--> click Properties.

2. Click the Customize button.

3. On the Customize Start Menu window--> click the Advanced tab.

4. In the Start menu items portion of the window--> locate the check box called Enable Dragging and Dropping. Click the check box so that a check appears--> Click OK and OK again. You can now drag and drop items on your Start Menu.
