This tweak makes the 'My Documents' folder on the Start Menu into a cascading folder, which then give you direct access to sub-folders without having to open the main 'My Documents' directory first.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new String value, or modify the existing value called 'CascadeMyDocuments' using the settings below.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
Note: This setting can be used either on a user by user basis by adding it to HKEY_CURRENT_USER or on a computer wide basis by adding it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
