Adding Programs or Folders to the Start All Programs Menu in Windows

Occasionally we run into a program that completes installation and does not add itself to the Start -> All Programs menu in Windows Vista or Windows 7. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to manually add it.

Click the Start Icon
Right Click All Programs
Click Open All Users

A folder will open:

Double click the Programs Folder

Adding any folder or shortcut here will add it to the All Programs menu for all users on the machine
