Reorganize Start Menu?

I've tried a couple different launches/start-menu replacements, but none seem to run properly on my HTC S720 (WM6 Standard). That that I'm all that worried about having a fancy launcher, but I would like to have a slightly less cluttered start menu...

So using the Explore function in ActiveSync, can I just drag folders around in \Windows\Start Menu\, create new ones, drop items into them, etc., like with the regular Windows Start Menu? Are there any limitations to this - subfolders not allowed, etc.?

Don't wanna muck up my phone without confirmation first

I did try QM... it didn't work. Unless I missed something, there's NO documentation with it...

I think all of the start menu programs are for WM Pro. The best way to clean up a WM Standard start menu is what what was mentioned in Soundy 1st post. I did this with my Q with no problems afterwards.

Yeah, doesn't seem to be a whole lot of anything that works on Standard... almost all of the "Must-have free apps" I've tried either don't run at all, or only partly run, or just plain crash the phone.

Wonder if I can upgrade this phone to WM6 Pro?

No can do on the upgrade. You may want to take a look at this thread below.

Must Have Software

Also search the rest of the application forum in the smartphone section of the site.
