Customize start menu option

I would like to change the game menu that appears on the right side of the Start menu, and replace it with a link to my file download.

I guess we can do all this through Windows Registry, but don't know how to do that.

Please help me!

Re: Customize start menu option

Could you be more specific, what do you mean by "the game menu that appears on the right side of the Start menu" ?

By that I mean I would like to have a link to C:\Users\MonUsername\Downloads instead of the link to "Games" which brings in useless games.

Re: Customize start menu option

Copy the below information on the notepad and save it as download.reg.
Go to registry editor; on File menu, click to import this information in the registry.

Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83b1-96b02CFE0D52)] 
@ = "Downloads" 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83b1-96b02CFE0D52) DefaultIcon] 
@ = "imageres.dll, -184" 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83b1-96b02CFE0D52) InprocServer32] 
@ = "shell32.dll" 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83b1-96b02CFE0D52) shellopencommand] 
@ = "explorer.exe shell: Downloads" 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83B1-96B02CFE0D52)] 
@ = "Downloads"
To return to default settings:

Code:
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareClassesCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83b1-96b02CFE0D52)] 

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerCLSID (ED228FDF-9EA8-4870-83B1-96B02CFE0D52)]
