Managing Program Folders?


C

I'm a bit new to Win7 and have a question. How do I manage my program folders in Win7.
I'm used to WinXP and to manage folders there (Startup, etc), you would right click on the
Start button and select "Explore all Users" and a window opens when you can manage the
Start Folders. How do I do the same thing in Win7? I want to remove a program from the
Startup folder and add another one, but cannot seem to figure out how to do it.

Any insights really appreciated.

Also, there other Newsgroups for Win7? If so, where do I locate them?

Thanks

Not that I know of.

It will depend on what newsreader you have. The steps will be:
1) Update your newsgroups list to get anything added since last
time.
2) Search the list for likely matching strings.
3) Subscribe to any newsgroups found.

I tried this just now with "win7" and "windows7", and I found
only this newsgroup.

Sincerely,

Click the Start "Orb" and then right click All Programs. Open and Open
All Users should get you where you need to go.

Not that I'm aware of, sorry.

Click the Start button (left click, that is).

Then Right-click All Programs and select Open or Open All Users.

Navigate as follows, assuming your system configuration
is "standard", to see your startup settings:

C:
ProgramData
Microsoft
Windows
Start Menu
Programs

Having got this far, you may want to go further:

Administrative Tools
System Configuration
and click on the Startup tab

Tread carefully, and have hidden files visible
so you can see ProgramData in the first place.
You might want to save your system before you
make any changes.

If you don't already have an icon for changing
folder options so you can see hidden files,
click F1 to get into the help system,
and search for "folder options".
