  • All programs list - moved shortcut on the desktop, but want to add back to the list of all programs

    I moved a shortcut from the list of all programs on the desktop.  I would like to keep the shortcut on the desktop, but also restore on all programs.  How can I do this?  I tried drag-and-drop and Windows Explorer without success.  Topic is not found in help.  Windows XP Professional SP3.

    the visual office includes folders and you can copy the shortcut via Solution Explorer.

    simply right-click on the Start button and select open.

    Explorer opens on the behalf of users.

    If you look closely, you will see a folder called desktop.

    find the shortcut, then copy.

    Find the folder of programs all then drill down to the subfolder you want and paste the shortcut in him.

    You can also use the above method to organize your desktop.

    Incidentally, do not play with the admin folder or all users.

I know that I can create a shortcut on my desktop or pin them to the start menu, but there are literally dozens of programs in there that I use semi systematically in the X 86 folder that I don't want on my desk or pinned to the start menu. Often when I try and call a program of a doucument windows comes up with the association of file menu, but the program (X 86) is not displayed. Is this a bug with my system or a known problem such as Google Earth users know ovet the past year where as a result of an upgrade of the Windows program removes program form the list of all programs and removes the desktop icon?

  • Windows Media Center is not in the list of all programs - Vista Home Premium

    Hi, I can't find Windows Media Center on my computer - I have Windows Vista Home Premium.

    I try to use my TV on my computer. It has a built-in TV Tuner. But I can't find Media Center.

    I know when I got the computer last year - it came with something to activate the TV - but I have no internet at this point - so nothing could be done. Since then, I've upgraded to Service Pack 2. All the documentation said that Media Center should be there. I've looked everywhere and Media Center does not appear to be more!

    Can you please help - if I don't now how can I access the Media Center.

    Thanks in advance.


    Thanks for this, before I saw this, I worked on how to solve this problem.

    First, I downloaded the cumulative update for Windows Media Center-still nothing.

    Then I peeked my Control Panel/Default Programs/Set Program Access and Computer Defaults.

    My settings were now on the custom, and default media player - tick on "Enable access to this program" next to Windows Media Center had been removed! (of course by another media program)-I reticked this box and as if by magic, the program appeared in all programs and was now visible to the rest of the computer. "

    This setting should make it invisible to the rest of the computer - he of course does not use if it is checked.

    (I also found once I ticked the box next to Windows Media Player (who had also disappeared, even if it was marked as a media player by default) - he also appeared in the all programs list- and he had never been there before!) I know because I had to go and insert my link on the desktop to access it.

    All sorted - what a huge relief. Just as it takes.

  • Start the list of all menu Programs - folder accidentally moved to the desktop

    I just got a new computer with Windows 7.  I accidentally dragged a folder in the "all programs" list in the start menu on the desktop.  I just wanted to create a shortcut, but accidentally moved the folder instead.  How do I restore the folder to the list of "all programs"?


    That is not a problem and it is easy to retrieve.  You are going to want to go where the files and folders are stored in your Start menu and the best way to do this is to open your Start menu, go to all programs and on another folder with the right mouse button and choose explore.  This will put you in the location wherever the folders and shortcuts are stored.  From there, just move up a level and move the backrest to the workstation and you should be good.

    For more information, there are 2 folders that make up what you see in the menu start, a common (or public) and a private.  Both get merged to give a smooth.

    The common (public), one is to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start start\program

    and the private sector, one is C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Files above are below hidden folders so you will need to first enable the option to view hidden folders and files, but the right click Explore method is the best way to get there anyway.

    Finally, if you want to create a shortcut to a folder on the start menu, find it and then right click and choose "send to".  Under this menu, you will see an option to create a shortcut on the desktop.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck & enjoy Windows 7

  • KB2728973 does not appear in the list, add / remove programs

    Hi, I am using Windows XP Media Center Edition with service pack 3 is installed, and KB2728973 is displayed as being installed on the Microsoft update site, but KB2728973 does not appear in the list, add / remove programs. The rest of July for Windows XP updates appear as being installed on the two site update of Microsoft and adding list / remove programs, it seems strange that KB2728973 does not work. It is important that KB2728973 does not appear in the list of add / remove programs? or do I need to do more to install it? I also tried to manually install the KB2728973, but again, he did not appear in the list Add / Remove programs. I understand that there is a position similar to mine, but I read it, and I realized that the question of the poster was a bit different from mine. I also wanted to take the time to mention that the automatic updates of Windows listed KB2728973 as being installed successfully, but it always seems strange that KB2728973 does not appear in the list, add / remove programs. I also checked in C:\WINDOWS, and there wasn't any folder $NtUninstall to KB2728973. Oh, and Yes, I have "Show updates" checked in Add / Remove programs.   Contribution to this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    It is normal that some updates to not appear in the list of add / remove programs in the control panel for various reasons, but in this case, it will update the entries in the untrusted certificates store then to see if it is installed, you can check if the newly revoked certificates are listed.

    Here is a link to a page that explains the changes he brings (the certificates that have been revoked):

    [url] [url]

    Scroll down to the section that has the right:

    How can [B] after you apply the update, I check the certificates in the Microsoft Untrusted Certificates Store? [/ B]

    If you have no events in Event Viewer, you can open IE and click on Internet Options - Content tab - then in the Middle under "Certificates" click on "Certificates" and then click on the arrow to scroll to the right and click the "Untrusted publishers" tab.  You should see all those listed in the MS article here.

    It also creates this key in the registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software \Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Windows\ {C3C986D6-06B1-43BF-90DD-BE30756C00DE}

    where it lists what Windows Update of roots revoked.

  • deleted programs manually always appear in the list, add/remove programs

    I have a large number of programs I uninstalled, but they still appear in Add/Remove program with the button Delete. Using the button Delete has nothing else that wasting time by telling me that he was unable to find the components. I went to the registry editor and manually delete all programs. I then checked the list Add/Remove programs and programs have disappeared. Then, I closed the registry editor and check the Add/Remove Programs list. The programs appear once more, this time without a button Delete. When I go back to the registry editor, the programs have disappeared. How to make them out of the Add/Remove Programs list?

    That all sounds pretty messed - too bad you took this approach.

  • Cannot find paint - is no longer listed in all programs

    I have Vista Home Premium.  My son and I have separate user accounts.  My son was connected to his user account, he entered in start - all programs and dragged painting on his desk, as he has the icon on his desktop.  However, when I login under my user account, I now can't find the painting because it is more listed in all programs and I don't have an icon on my desktop.  I'm looking for paint when you are connected to my user account.

    Hello, horsedreamer72

    Thanks for choosing Microsoft answers Forum!

    Try to repeat the search Carey suggests, but instead of looking for the paint, look for: mspaint

    The mspaint program shows in the search results?

    When search you from the menu start, a list of search results will be displayed where the programs are normally. To return to the list of programs, click on the button just to the right of the search box.

    You can find more information on the following Windows search feature: menu start (overview).

    Have you tried looking in Autoruns?

    To identify what loads when you start using Autoruns (freeware from Microsoft).

    With Autoruns, you can deselect an item which disables startup, or you can click with the right button on an item, then remove it. If you clear the check box that you can check back for re - activate the element. It is an approach much safer than editing the registry and better than using msconfig.
