Windows 7: Can't Find Accessories

Can't Find Accessories

When I go to All Program, I cannot find Accessories in the list. I know it was between XPS Viewer and Corel Paint Shop, but it is not there anymore. Don't have a clue as to why it is gone. How do I get it back?

Can't Find It

Do you mean, Control Panel, Programs and Features, where you can change of uninstall programs? I do not see Windows Components, or Utilities, or Accessories. (I am running Windows 7 Professional.)

This is the path:

C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Go there via "Run" and make a shortcut and you can access them.

OK, I am getting closer, I did what you suggested, but it still does not give me everything. Curiously, I found Accessories in All Programs under my wife's user name, and everything shows up there. When I followed your instructions, I have the Accessories shortcut on my desktop, but it had very little in it. There are two folders, one for System Tools, and another for Ease of Access. Within the Systems Tools folder, there is no Disk Cleanup or Defragmenter. The only things in there are computer, control panel, desktop, and private character editor. I don't see most of the stuff that shows up under Accessories under my wife's user name.
