How to Pin a Web Shortcut to Your XP Start Menu

Using the directions provided in this this tech-recipe, you can pin a shortcut to any website into your Start menu. This is handy for links such as your intranet or webmail site.


Open up Notepad, and copy the following (We will use Tech-Recipes.com as the example.):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}]
@="Tech-Recipes.com"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}DefaultIcon]
@="%SystemRoot%system32shell32.dll,-47"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}InstanceInitPropertyBag]
"CLSID"="{13709620-C279-11CE-A49E-444553540000}"
"method"="ShellExecute"
"Command"="Tech-Recipes.com"
"Param1"="http://www.tech-recipes.com/"

Save and name the file something like XP_Tech-Recipes_StartMenu.reg.

Run the reg file you just created, and reboot. Now, you have a link to the site on your Start menu.
