Adding your favorite links to the Delphi 2005 Welcome page

In Delphi 2005, it’s
easy to modify the Welcome page menubar (the left column of the page) and add
your own favorite links.  Here are the necessary steps:

  1. From Windows Explorer locate the Welcome page folder under your Delphi 2005
    installaction folder.
  2. Select the Welcome page folder and then select the sub-folder called “xml“
  3. Open the file called menuBar.xml using the IDE and add a new section (or
    modify an existing section if you like) as follows:
<group>
        
<title>Favoritestitle>
        <item>
            <title>Steve’s Blogtitle>
            <link>http://blogs.borland.com/stevetlink>
