Access your documents faster in Vista

In order to make Vista more friendly, its great that you are able to customise it to make it do what you want (well almost).

What I dont like is all those uncessary clicks of the mouse when you want to access your Documnet or your C: drive etc. So after a bit of playing around here are some Tips to access your documents faster.

Let start:

1. Right-click on the Start button and choose Properties

Customise Start Properties

2. click on Customize …

Start customise

3. You will see a list of items that you can customise for your Vista:


4. You can now select from the various options to make the Start Menu work for you.

You will notice that there are options that you can select which are Display a Link or Display as a Menu

If you choose “Display as a link” this is the result (default):

As a link

If you choose “Display as Menu” this is the result where you can expand your options:

As a menu

5. Now to access your documnet faster with one click from the Menu, Find the option that is “Personal folder” and choose Display as a Menu


The result will be that the Documents option on the Start Menu will now show you all the subfolder and document !

Have a play with the various options. If you selected something and you dont like the result, go back and select a different option.

Well thats it for another Vista Tip from me.
