Lost Programs and Folder from Start-Up All Programs Menu

Hello to all,
Have no idea how I did it, must have been during an upgrade, but I've lost my Revo Unistaller Folder and programs from the ALL Program List. Can anyone advise how to get it back there? Thanks in advance.

Hello Glenn,

You could use the tutorial below to restore the default Start Menu "All Programs" shortcuts.
Start Menu All Programs in Windows 7 - Restore Default Shortcuts
However, I'm afraid that you'll need to create new shortcuts for your programs in the Start Menu though.

Hope this helps,

A repair install of Revo Uninstaller might re-add the shortcuts, thohgh it depends on how thorough the reinstall is.

Howdy Shawn,
I didn't need to reinstall the original shortcuts, just the Revo. So with the revelation of your's, right clicking the all program bar and getting to the actual directory where these items are stored, I just created a file folder and a shortcut to the .exe file and put it in that folder. Worked like a charm. Thank you for your experience and wisdom and helpfulness.

Howdy,
Thanks for the possibility, but Brink's tutorial, found and flicked the lightswitch in my head. Eureka. Appreciate your response!
