thing is though i don't want it on my desktop, and as soon as i add it to the start menu & delete the one on my desktop, i'm back to square one. maybe it's not all that important, but it seems like it would be easy.

I'm guessing you're shortcutting to a shortcut. Try copying the desktop shortcut there instead.
not sure where the confusion is. i want to put a shortcut from my temp directory in windows explorer to my start menu. i don't want one on my desktop at all. when i do your steps, i can get the shortcut to the start menu, but when i remove the one from the desktop, it obviously screws up the one on the start menu.
switch the start menu to classic ( it doesn't work properly with the new style)
drag n drop the temp folder from its original location onto the start button
now you have the folder at the top of all programs
navigate to C:\ Documents and Settings \user-name \Start Menu
cut n paste the temp folder into C:\ or whichever drive you prefer
now make a new tool-bar to My-Computer ~ or just the drive if you prefer
now the shortcut to the folder is visible & has cascading attributes
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
