Users have been asking for custom Menus, this is a way to easily do it.
Download a Resource Editor http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/
Open bbw64.exe (make backup first)
Double click RCData
go down to TBANDWINDOW and click
highlight some text in right hand window
ctrl+F type Help then press enter
just above object Help: TMenuItem
hit enter to create empty line
copy all the text starting on the line below Code: from the very left.
then paste on empty line in editor
press the green play arrow at the top
If you have not made a backup of bbw64.exe then File > Save As 'bbw64-Track.exe' else just Save (this will create a backup also) and any shortcuts will still work.
Use ctrl+F to search for and menu item you want to copy to a new menu.
Like Unfold search "BIG chorus"
Code:
        object MenuItemID221: TMenuItem
          Tag = 221
          Caption = 'Unf&old (convert to 1 BIG chorus)'
        end

then add your menu name
Code:
        object TrackMenuItemID221: TMenuItem
          Tag = 221
          Caption = 'Unf&old (convert to 1 BIG chorus)'
        end

This will give a divider line
Code:
      object TMenuItem
        Caption = '-'
      end


This will give a Sub Menu (see pic below)
Code:
      object TrackSubMenu: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'Sub Menu'
        object TrackSubItem1: TMenuItem
          Caption = 'Item 1'
        end
      end




This is just an example Menu, you can create a new menu using any other menu items from other menus to give quick access rather than going deep into menus.
The objects just need a unique name
so if you use object EditCopyTrack: TMenuItem from the Edit menu
you just need to add the new menu name in front
object TrackEditCopyTrack: TMenuItem
alt+R will access menu from keyboard "T&rack" the &r.
Code:
    object Track: TMenuItem
      Caption = 'T&rack'
      object TrackEditCopyTrack: TMenuItem
        Tag = 224
        Caption = 'Copy/Move &Tracks...'
      end
      object TrackTrackSettings: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'Track Settings and Actions...\t F7'
        OnClick = EditTrackSettingsClick
      end
      object TMenuItem
        Caption = '-'
      end
      object TrackRT_Assign: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'Realtracks Picker Dialog'
        OnClick = RT_AssignClick
      end
      object TrackRT_Prefs: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'Realtracks Preferences'
        OnClick = RT_PrefsClick
      end
      object TMenuItem
        Caption = '-'
      end
      object TrackRD_Assign: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'RealDrums Picker Dialog'
        OnClick = RD_AssignClick
      end
      object TrackRD_Prefs: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'RealDrums Preferences'
        OnClick = RD_PrefsClick
      end
      object TrackRD_Quick: TMenuItem
        Caption = 'RealDrums QuickList'
        OnClick = RD_QuickClick
      end
      object TMenuItem
        Caption = '-'
      end
    end

Customers Love Band-in-a-Box®!

Wow - we've been receiving some great feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I've had Band-in-a-Box for past 5 years. One of the best musical investments I've made. Has been great for writing songs, practice and jamming. I use mostly the real tracks and very little of midi."

"This program has gotten better every year for the past thirty years and I couldn't live without it now!"

"I've been using it since 1991 which was a primitive DOS version for midi development through midi keyboards. It has kept me upgrading ever since and 2023 is amazing. I'm always learning and always amazed."

"I just picked up the 2023 BIAB Pro, and have started educating myself on its intricacies and upgrades from previous versions. WOW!! What a writing toolbox! I am just so impressed so far."

"Love the new features in 2023! Started using Band in a Box way back in the early nineties. This program has been to the moon and back since then. Thanks!"

"This box contains the best bandmates! They are always ready to chat with you!"

"One of my best tools for composing arranging and playing!"

"Have you met my Band? they are here on BIAB.... always on time for gigs lol!"

"Awesome program that you'll never regret!"

"This is the best for whipping up a quick jam track!"

...and more!
