Manually Adding Programs to the Windows 10 Start Menu
Have you ever downloaded a program that didn’t come with a proper installer?

If you have software like this, it’s easy to add it to your Start menu if you need to and this video will show you how.
If you’re not using Windows 10, click here for a tutorial on adding programs to the Start menu in previous versions of Windows.

Hey adblock user! Would you mind whitelisting us? We don't run pre-roll or even post-roll adverts on our videos and it would really help us cover our costs. Without advertising revenue we couldn't bring you any content and we really don't feel our ads spoil the site at all. Thank you!
As shown in the video, open any File Explorer window and type %appdata% to access your own, personal Start menu or %programdata% to access the common or shared Start menu. Whichever folder you access, you then need to browse to the “Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu” sub folder.
