Issue with Start menu links in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Windows 7

    Hi All,

        Has anyone noticed that if you set all of the items on the start menu to menu they no longer work?

    Thanks

    I have on my Start menu, ordinarily all displayed as links, the following from top to bottom:

    Documents, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, Computer, Control Panel, Devices and Printers, and Run.

    I set all of these to displaying as a menu, and disabled the last two (which could not be displayed as such), and they all still worked fine for me.

    Not being able to duplicate this error, I'd try running a System File Checker scan by entering "sfc /scannow" into a Command Prompt. This will identify and repair and corrupted or missing operating system files. If that doesn't work, you could try loading your Windows 7 install DVD while the computer is running to perform an "in-place upgrade," as if you were upgrading from Windows Vista - this, too, will re-install needed OS components, and sometimes works where SFC fails.
