Manually Add a Folder to the All Apps List in Windows 10

Microsoft have completely changed the Start Menu in Windows 10. Start Screen in Windows 8/8.1 is rarely preferred by users, and it takes too much time to navigate between the Start Screen and Desktop. You can still add live tiles to Start menu in Windows 10, freely re-size it the way you like, or use the Start full screen instead. However, you can only add 512 tiles on Start.

Tip: You can now add up to 2048 tiles on the latest insider preview of Windows 10.

In one of my previous post I showed you an interesting tweak to set custom live tile images for Photos app. Similarly, you can manually add shortcuts to folders or apps on the All Apps list of the Start Menu! Now follow the following simple steps to know how to do this.
  • Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
  • Create a new shortcut to the folder or file in the "Programs" folder.
