Put A Item In The Start Menu For All Users

I deal with a lot of custom software as well as stand alone ham radio apps. They do not install but just reside in a folder on the hard drive. It is nice to have an icon in the start menut rather than hunt and peck in folders for the app you want. Here is a quick how to for making a start menu icon for all the users on your windows box

Create an icon for the program you want (to make it easier place the icon on the desktop)

Open My Computer / Computer, from the start menu.

In the location bar go to "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu"

Move the icon from desktop into this folder. Now if you click the start menu and go to all programs you will see the shortcut to your program there
