JSI Tip 4085. How do I open multiple Start menu items without having to renegotiate the Start menu?.

When you navigate the Start menu and click on a icon, the object opens and the Start menu disappears. If you wanted to open another item that has a similar Start menu path, you must begin your navigation all over again.

If you hold down the SHIFT key as you click an item, the object launches normally, BUT the Start menu does NOT close, allowing you to resume navigation from that point.
