Windows 7: Start-Up Programs Question

From OP For Dwarf et al Re ALL USER Folder: Where ?

Hi,

So much a novice with this, I'm not sure how to make a "snip" and post it like you suggested.

Anyway, please see my previous post re all of this.

Two users on this PC.
I can find under their User name, their startup individual folder.

But, no matter where I look, I cannot find the All User Folder.
I also tried in the Search Box for ALL, All Users, etc. but nothing comes up.

If I go to C:/Users, the only folders that show up are:

Bob
Default
public
Steve

Bob and Steve, of course being me and my son.

So, where can All Users be ?
Could it be a hidden folder ?
Does one have to create it, somehow, by themselves ?

Is it possible just not to have one as there might be just no common start up programs, although this seems, to me, a bit unlikely.

So, where might it be ?

Thanks for help.

Regards,
Bob

Don't know if this helps but I don't have "all users" either. And this might help with how to post a "snip" or screenshot, https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...en-forums.html . Hope that helps. D.

To see the All Users folder You need to go into folder options and tick the option to see hidden files and folders and uncheck hide protected operating system files, make sure to click " Apply".

You can also look at the HKCU and HKLM hives in the registry, somewhere under software, microsoft, current version. Current User and Local Machine respectively. They can have more entries.

I stand corrected, Thank you pat247 and Dwarf. Following their instructions I find I do have "all users", so thanks for the how to. D.
