How to Add Videos Link to the Start Menu in Windows 7

Windows 7 Start Menu is an improved edition of the Start Menu that earlier versions of Windows had. The most remarkable feature in it is its search feature using which you can search for any program on your computer. It contains links to your most used folders like Documents, Pictures, Music and your Home folder. But it does not contain any link to your Videos folder.
