Organizing the Start / Programs Listing

As you add more and more programs, the listing of them in Start / Programs can get fairly long.
One solution is to categorize your programs into several groups, create a folder for those groups, and move the shortcuts to those folders.

For example:

1. Start the Explorer
2. Go to Windows / Start Menu / Programs
3. Create new folders with the categories you want (e.g. Graphics, Utilities, Internet etc.)
4. Now move the shortcuts to those programs in Windows / Start Menu / Programs to whichever category you decide.

This can greatly reduce clutter and make it a lot easier to find your programs.

Note: Windows2000 and WindowsXP Users will need to go to the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs directory
