For the All Users folder, you need to uncheck the option Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) as described here Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

As far as i can see there is no need to show hidden folders.

When in need to add programms to the startup folder (even if you cannot see the All users folder) :

All programms
Scroll down and find the map Startup at the bottem of the list.
Rightclick on the map
Select: Show all users

(translation can be a bit messy since i use a Dutch version, but i should be very close)
