Down load the program. Right click on icon go to properties>compatibility> change setting for users >privileges. Then select what you want.

Open the start menu and right click on the all programs item

Click on open all users

repeat the above but click on open

This will open the folders containing the current users start menu and that for all users - you can now move or delete the shortcuts to set which items are available to which users.

If you do this as your user you will need to open the Hidden folder at c:\users\brothrersusername\appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu to check the shortcuts for your brothers ID

Most install that I';ve done ask if it's for just one user or all users of the PC.

If he has a limited account, the program shortcut icon will not appear in his Start menu and/or desktop.

Not all software asks. It is up to the programmer that created the install package.

Install the software in your user directory. Instead of "Program Files".
