 Getting Started - Creating Items

Back Index Next

When you start CoolMenu for the first time it'll look something like this.

CoolMenu Components

The first step is to get some Items onto the Main CoolBar.
  • Right-click on CoolMenu to bring up the context menu

  • Select Programs... - this opens the folder containing the Windows Start Menu shortcuts

  • Click on Explorer and drag it over the Main CoolBar on CoolMenu, the pointer will change indicating that the shortcut can be dropped

  • Release the mouse button and an Item (button) displaying the Explorer icon will appear

  • Click on the newly created Item and Explorer will be launched (be careful not to double-click)

  • Try opening some of the other folders and dragging some shortcuts to CoolMenu
Before going any further it would be a good idea to Save the current settings of CoolMenu.
  • Right-click on CoolMenu to bring up the context menu

  • Select Save
Do this after several updates to ensure that your changes don't get lost.

It's worth pointing out at this stage that CoolMenu doesn't take a copy of anything dropped on to it. CoolMenu simply links the Item (button) to the file dropped on to it. If you delete a file which has previously been dropped on to CoolMenu it's button will no longer function as the link has been broken.
