Experts,

I need help on adding a shortcut to the "All Programs" for "All Users" on Windows 7.

I am able to add a shortcut for "All users" on the desktop by going to :
C:\Users\Public\Desktop

But I can't find the way to add the shortcut to the All Program files.

I appreciate the help.

Thank you,
R

If you open up your start menu then right click on all programs you'll have the option "Open All Users". Adding the shortcuts in here will allow you to add it for all users on the computer.

The real path for symbolic links can also be found with the Sysinternals Junction program.

In this case it's C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
