10 Windows / All Users' Desktop shortcuts
How to install program to all user accounts in Windows?

Some program installers only create the application's shortcuts in the account that was used to install the program.
Typically all one needs to do to make the program accessible to all users on the computer
is copy these shortcuts to a location that all users can access, such as the Public Desktop or Start Menu. To do so:

Find the application's shortcut icon(s) in the installing user's account.
Common places where icons are created:

User's Start Menu:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Wind ows\Start Menu\Programs

User's Desktop:

Copy the shortcut(s) to one or both of the following locations:

All Users' Desktop:
C:\Users\Public\Public Desktop

All Users' Start Menu:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
