How to Add Dropbox to Windows 7 Start Menu?

I love Dropbox hacks and write them as and when I encounter one.

I use Windows 7 on my desktop besides using our new 21.5” Apple iMac. And Dropbox is one of the first applications I install on any operating system!

How-To-Geek has shared how to add “My Dropbox” or any link for that matter to your Windows 7 Start menu.

Windows 7 Libraries have a Recorded TV link and this hack just renames it to Dropbox folder giving you easy access to it.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Customize Start Menu by going to ‘Properties’ (right click on Start Menu)
  • Set ‘Recorded TV’ to be displayed as a link
  • Right Click on Recorded TV and change its name to My Dropbox.
  • Right click on the My Dropbox and click Properties
  • Change the Library location to your Dropbox folder
  • Optionally change the ‘Optimize this library for’ to ‘General Items’

This hack enables you to quickly find your Dropbox folder via Start Menu by mouse or by keyboard by search.
