Changing Vista Taskbar and Start Menu

Is there any way I can change the 'Games' shortcut on the taskbar to Videos other than simply renaming it (if I do this the Games icon still appears)?

Oops, I meant to say 'Start Menu' not Taskbar.

I don't think that it is possible without a registry hack. However if you use customise and change personal folder to display as menu then you can quickly see the video folder.

I too miss a video link.

Just found out that if you switch to classic view then it is possible to put a link to Videos on the start menu.

Thanks for your help, I will have to do it with two clicks (Personal Folder, then Videos) rather than just one.

Seems a shame I can't change the Games link as it's never used (not very good at games, apart from Solitaire!).

Does anyone know if Windows 7 lets you do this (I'm using Vista)?
