The start menu is a combination of what is here:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
and what is here:
C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Sometimes you have to right click on all programs a few times to get that open all user to show up.
Here is the actual location C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
You will also find some start menu items here C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
AppData is hidden use this tutorial to unhide it use Option 1 step 3 File and Folder - Hide or Unhide

Thank you "Bongo" and "username issues", that is exactly what I was looking for - a bit more hidden than in XP but once I unhide it I can set up my start menu exactly as I would like it - job done!! (Ihope - I'll get back to you if I hit further trouble)
