I really wish there was a way to bypass Microsoft's "Categories" I see that as long as there is ONE shortcut in one of the Start Menus, putting another one where you would like doesn't have any effect, as it only looks at the first (or original) entry for the Apps View. So for example if I put a shortcut of Internet Explorer in a Folder called "Internet" or "Browser" the categorized shortcut will always remain under the category Microsoft has chosen for IE: "Tools."
If anyone has any insight into getting around this or assigning/changing categories assigned to applications, I would love to know if there is a way. Not a big deal, just frustrating at the inability to customize completely. Thanks!
