    All users accessing software

    I'm sure there's a simple answer to this but with all my other problems, I can't get my head around it. Software which is being deployed by group policy is largely fine but occasionally I want to install something locally on a single machine and when I do, it is not available to other users who log on. I believe this is an issue with older software but I've just installed some SEN stuff our LEA want us to trial and that's doing the same. I've got around it by putting a shortcut on a shared drive but there must be an easier way?

    Is there a shortcut to it in the All Users start menu? It is stored here: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\

    The next question is - do you have the group policy enabled which prevents icons in this folder from appearing to your users? Remove common program groups from Start Menu

    I couldn't see the shortcuts in All Users. I'll check the group policy settings. Thanks. I've created a shortcuts folder on a shared drive and put them in there, which is quite tidy.
