Reorganising the Start menu
There are two ways that you can launch programs from your Start menu. The most common way is to open the Start menu and then simply search for the file or program you need. What if you cannot remember the name of a program though? You can browse the Start menu manually by clicking on “All programs”. Over time however, this section of the Start menu becomes quite cluttered, making it difficult to find anything. In this video, we’ll show you how you can reorganise and de-clutter it.
Please wait a moment while the video loads. To start the video presentation, please click on the picture below once the play icon appears.
For reference, the folder paths to the Start menu are:-
C:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu (Your personal Start menu)
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu (Start menu for all users).
Most Windows 8 Start menu replacement software follows these same rules too.
