The Windows 10 Start menu includes a list of shortcuts to common locations such as Pictures, Downloads, and Settings in a tiny sidebar. Using Settings, you can customize which shortcuts appear there. Here I will show you how to do it.

First, open the start menu and click on the gear icon or search for settings (or press the shortcut key Windows+I).

In the settings click on the Personalization option.

From the Personalization, select “Start” from the sidebar of the window.

In this window, scroll to the bottom of the window and click on “Choose which folders appear on start”.

Now you have to choose which folder you want to show on the start menu. To make one of these appear in your start menu shortcuts sidebar, click the switch to “On”. If You’d Like to hide any of them set the switch to “Off”.

The next time you open Start, you will see the shortcuts you’ve enabled as a vertical list on the far-left side of the Start menu. For example, here we’ve enabled all of the possible shortcuts.

If you don’t see all of the shortcut icons you’ve enabled, it means your Start menu is too short. To resize it, click the top edge of the Start menu and drag it upward to make it larger. That will make more room for all of the shortcut icons in your window.

That’s It.

Thank You!!
