  • ok, know problem, now how to fix?

    I posted last week about a problem where alot of my shortcuts in my program start group disappeared out of the blue...

    Well now in the control panel, under the User settings I only have one account and thats named "chuck" and I have admin prevledges...

    When I right clicked and explored "chuck" start menu, the items weren't there (the ones that went missing... but when I explore "all users" the program group is there and with all the proper shortcuts.

    So... how do I force it to show me ALL USERS program group, instead of chuck?
    (remember... I only have one account on my system... chuck... with admin rights.)

    Thx in advance.

    "Chuck" is a user, so it should be visible to "Chuck" if it's in the "All Users" desktop.

    More likely, IMO, is that you've got WinXP's "clean unused shortcuts" setting enabled (It's on by default).

    What is your "program start group"?

      just move it all to Chuck.

      thank you and good night.

      I keep mine in All users personally (mostly because new programs are more likely to put start menu items there), but one or the other will fix the issue.

        What did you do to the administrator account? Rename it to Chuck?

          Windows creates a administrator account when you install it with whatever name you put on there, and the true admin account remains hidden (atleast with sp1 installs)
          You can always access it through safe mode though, which offers all kinds of fun for colleges and people that leave laptops on tables....but I digress.
