after installing some programs some of them don't appear in the programs menu of other members of the family when they log on with thier own log on screen. Can any of you good folks tell if there's a way to allow certain programs to be used by all users? windows XP home.......thankyou very much..Andy

Copy all shortcuts and paste to:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs

BTW the same can be done with desktop shortcuts (in the Desktop folder), except that it is probably better to Move them into All Users, rather than copying them - or sometimes you can end up with 2 sets of icons.
