Windows Vista Tips and Tricks

Where is the Start Menu Folder?

Attach:vista_start.png Δ There are two folders comprising your Start Menu in Vista. The "global" one (for all users) is at

   C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

It is merged with the user-specific start menu at

   C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

to produce the start menu you see when you click on the round logo button (shown right) and then expand All Programs.

You, of course, need Admin privileges to edit the global start menu --- i.e. Vista will annoy you with two popups every time you try to do anything in that folder, unless you disable the User Access Control.

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests, which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.

Theodore Roosevelt
