Speaking from the Windows perspective (although the same probably
applies elsewhere): this is the kind of thing which installer
generators handle for you. If you wrap your installer using
NSIS  or Wix  or whatever other installer-generator,
that will include options to add menu items. (Caveat: this
is informed hearsay; I've never actually used either of those
If you *want* to do it yourself then, on Windows, you basically want
to create folders and shortcuts within the user's Start Menu shell
folder. It's not too hard even from scratch; my winshell module might
help a little, too.
