Start Menu Shortcuts

Posted: 06-30-2006, 04:24 AM
Ok...
So i'd like to organize my start menu a bit.
I located the start menu programs dir under AppData in the user account.
Problem is, these shortcuts are installed progs and such like previous
versions.

What i'm looking for is the shortcut location for the default progs such as
"Windows Marketplace" and "Windows Collaberation" so that I may move 'em to
their own dir. Naturally, that sort of thing isn't under the "Default" user
dir.
I do realize that I can make a dir under *my* user and drag 'em over, but it
would be nice to find where they live to make the process easier in the
future.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Look in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

You can get there easy by right clicking on the Start Button and selecting
"Open All Users" or "Explore All Users"

Well, of course it was that easy.
Guess i've had a case of tunnelvision. Much thanks for the info.
