The short answer is you can't, as it was quite deliberately disabled by MS. The logic I've seen about this lack of feature (as far as I recall) was to tempt you to buy a higher Win 7 version - somewhat dubious I feel.

Well, there are third party programs to do this but strictly it is against Win 7 starter edition licence, so I guess it is against the forum rules for me to point you to anything.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.
