    Is it possible to have a folder within a folder in the new windows 10 start menu?

    I have added a windows 7 and 10 comparison

    Thats always helpful ^

    As far as I can see, the best I could do without doing anything other than right clicking, was create a shortcut to a folder with certain sections that reside in "roaming".

    e.g. C:\Users\efa11\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\FileZilla FTP Client <-- I can create shortcuts in and they show up in start menu
    but... C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\FileZilla Server <-- I cannot create shortcuts in this area. Folders only, and they do not show.


    Looks to depend on where the files are located on whether you can or cannot add shortcuts to a folder (but not a folder). This of course is just right clicking normal user stuff. I assume what you want, can be done by some method. Why wouldn't we be able to? lol dunno
