    I have lost my Accessories folder from All Programs. Please help, I still have disk clean-up and paint, etc available but everytime I want to use the things included in the accessories folder, I have to search for it.

    Hello Kazaam,

    Here's a copy of my Accessories folder from the "All Users" Start Menu location that you can use to copy back. :)

    Hope it helps,
    Shawn

    Thanks for the super-helpful guide. :) I'd like to create individual Start Menus for each user (primarily because we have a young son that likes to use the computer, but I'd like to have his Start Menu be only his programs and not be cluttered up with dozens and dozens of our work programs that aren't appropriate for him to mess around with). I tried doing the "open" as described in "Start Menu for Only Current Logged On User", but it only brings up a very limited menu selection of what could be removed (most programs aren't listed, so they can't be removed). But of course if I do "All Users", then it erases them from our accounts as well as his. Back in XP there were shortcut folders for each individual user as well as a Default folder that held shortcuts that were common to all users. I was able to get around this problem by copying all the Default shortcuts to our individual Shortcut folders, wiping the Default folder, and then erasing programs from only my son's Shortcut directory. But I can't seem to locate individual Shortcut folders in Windows 7. Any suggestions? ETA: Er, maybe not. If I open two windows - one for the "open as current user", and the other "open all users" - then I can move the shortcuts from the All Users into the Current User section, and open up additional folders for the other accounts that should have access to the programs and copy them there as well. Basically the same thing I did before, just a bit more of a round-about way. :) I'll leave this here in case anyone has the same issue.

    Hello Tamago, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    A workaround for this would be to open the "All Users" Start Menu location (Option Two in tutorial) and copy what you want into your "Current User" Start Menu for your two (parents) user accounts, then delete the ones you do not want your son to have available from the "All Users" Start Menu location.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Heh, we cross-posted - I'd figured it out and was editing my comment to reflect the new solution. :) Thanks for the quick reply!

    Thank you.


    Admin, Brink, Thank you so much for this fix/tutorial. It is so simple yet absolutly impossible to find any where else. I am running Windows7 Home Pre 64bit SP1 and MS has the damn thing locked down - I dont know what they are afraid of. Its guys like you with this knowledge that make me breath a sigh of relief when it comes to work around solutions, like this one, when the regular security tab/ properties do not work anymore.

    Thanks again!
