Create A Drive Menu For My Computer.
Set My Computer to work like a menu for easier access to the drives you need.
By default, the My Computer item on the Start menu is configured to work like a
standard folder window. If you need to access a specific drive, select My
Computer from the Start menu, wait a moment for the window to appear, and then
double-click the icon for the drive you need to access.
When you're in a hurry, this two-step procedure can be time-consuming and
frustrating—especially if My Computer contains a large number of drive icons.
However, Windows XP makes it easy for you to configure My Computer so it works
like a menu, with each drive listed as a menu item.
1. Right-click the Start button, and select Properties.
2. Click Customize, which is adjacent to the Start Menu radio button, and select
3. Scroll through the Start Menu Items list box until you see My Computer.
4. Select Display As A Menu, and click OK twice.
Now, when you select My Computer from the Start menu, you'll see a menu of
individual drives. To access the contents of that drive, just select the drive
letter from the menu.
