I have two different identities set up for me and a friend when i install something in one id it will appear in both id's eg word, excel. But some progrmas will only appear in the programs menu of the id i installed it in. Is there any way to get the program menu to be exactly the same? So that all programs installed appear on both id's?

Any ideas?

Cheers

Go to C:\Documents and Settings. (where C is your hard drive letter)...

Get ready for some copying and pasting...

Copy the stuff in your C:\Documents and Settings\(User name)\Start Menu\Programs

You could paste that into C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs

OR

into you're friend's folder. Hope it helps...

I had the same problem with a few programs. It installed under my user name but not my daughters. Just remember where you downloaded the file to, go on your friend ID and install there also. :)
