A friend of mine just tweeted an interesting tip from LifeHacker: you can add your Dropbox folder directly to the Windows 7 Start Menu. For those of you that don’t know, Dropbox is a file synchronization service that lets you keep files on multiple computers in sync similar to Windows Live Sync or the more robust Windows Live Mesh, but available in three different pricing tiers. Dropbox users can share files with others, back them up online, or access them from any computer or mobile device with an Internet connection.
So how do you add your Dropbox to the Start Menu? The How-To-Geek figured out a hack for this that using the Libraries feature and renaming the “Recorded TV” library to a different name. Obviously, if you use that library for your saved TV shows, this solution is not ideal. But if you don’t, then you can definitely take advantage of this hack. The details and steps, screenshots included, are available here on the howtogeek.com blog.
