    Okay....

    I've been trying to figure this out for a while and I just cant' find a way. it's probably really simple but oh well, I'm slow :)

    see in this picture....

    [​IMG]


    it says 'Internet' in white and then the name of the program (internet explorer) in grey under it. Then, where you see Direct Connect, it says nothing. I tried adding a comment but to no avail. So what I want to do is for Direct Connect have "File Sharing" in white and then Direct Connect under it in the grey...

    any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated *wink wink* (sexual inuenddo..... oh yes)

    I doubt it's possible, but someone might prove me wrong if you're lucky ;)
    The "Internet" and "Email" shortcuts in the Start Menu aren't regular shortcuts. Those are the only two that have the descriptions under them.

    the way i do it, is this:

    uncheck the two boxes circled in the picture...

    then "Pin" your internet and email to the start mail, like any other application.

    That would only get rid of "Internet" and "Email." What he wants to do is add "File Sharing" to the DirectConnect shortcut, which is what I still think is not possible

    Yep :) I like having that there. I could make it all uniform with no labels but I want a label.. I think it would look nifty :) then I could prance around the house naked and proclaim myself a 1337est of h4x0rs!..... or something like that :)

    Good thing it (seemingly) can't be done then! :D
