    Your music files should still be in your Windows Explorer.

    I had no idea you could put music on the start menu.

    Hi Hermitt,
    Sure can, one way to do it is to Right click on your Music Folder, send it to Desktop and then Drag the Icon to your Start button and voila, you have it in your Start menu.
    There are probably simpler ways but that is the only one I can remember.

    Take care
    Ray

    Hi Ray,
    Thanks for the tip. I bet that tip would work for Chaos Queen too, right?
    Maybe even open the recycle bin and restore the deleted icon? ;)

    Hi Hermitt,
    Yes it should work for Chaos Queen and yes you have a Good Point(y), the Recycle Bin, I keep forgetting about that, but then again I am a maniac about emptying that sucker right away, maybe a bad habit from the Old days when my HD was only a whopping 30MB big.:D

    Me too. :D

    Once I delete something, I go straight to the Recycle Bin and empty it. I've learned the hard way that isn't the best thing to do. :D

    --------------------------------------

    Sounds like a good method to me.

    Thanks TheShooter,
    Happy to see I am not alone in this "Cleaning Habit" and yes I agree it Might be a Bad habit since once or twice I deleted the wrong files, luckily nothing like a Prog. file or anything disastrous...

    And thanks for the comments regarding "It sounds like a good method"
    Now if Only the Orignal Poster can respond to her Q. and see if it worked for her or not.

    Yes, I'm anxious to see if it works for the user as well. Might want to stop filling up this thread until then. :D

    If the drag and drop or restore from the Recycle bin doesn't work maybe: right click on Start - Start Menu tab - Customize... - for Music select "Display as a link" or "display as a menu."
