    I added Documents and Library to the start menu by dragging. However, I can't remove them now!
    Any ideas on how to solve this?
    Windows Live Messenger has the option to remove unpin from start menu while Librays and Documents doesnt!

    The start menu is only a part of your profile.

    Have you tried to access this via Explorer? Normally it should redirect you to the folder if you do a right-click on the start button and select "explorer" from the context menu

    Try the following:
    Rightmouseclick on the start button, choose properties.
    Go to t he Start Menu tab, and choose customize.

    find the Documents and or Libraries, and choose 'Don't display this item'.

    Sorry to OT on your thread but just wondering....I have XP installed on partition A & Win7 on partition B. When i boot into Win7, i cannot see partition A but in XP, i can see both partition.

    Is there a way to allow seeing partition A when in Win7?

    What does the disk management in control panel say? Does it see the partition?

    You have to assign a dirve letter to the XP disc on Windows 7. Go to disk management.

    Thanks guys.... I saw the partition in disk management but did not notice the missing drive letter. I can now see the drive in My Computer after giving that partition a drive letter.

    Thanks again for the help :)

    P/s: I actually thought it was some new Win7 security feature :p

    Hopefully you don't run into trouble, if you assign both partitions a drive letter :confused:

    I don't know if it is a bug or not, but I have heard a couple people say their XP drive doesn't automatically mount and assign itself a drive letter.

    I just booted into XP and there is no problem at all. Works fine after giving it a drive letter in Win7 :)

    I'm guessing this is a Win7 bug :D
