1. Click on the Start orb
2. Right click on All Programs
3. Click on Open All Users
4. Double click on Programs (All your Programs should be listed)
5. Right Click anywhere in the open window and create a new folder.
6. Open the new folder and right click to create a new Shortcut and follow the prompts.

I hope I am understanding you correctly. Do you mean the folder "Startup" that you put a program into so that it starts with Windows?

If so you will find it (Startup) in All Programs. If you right click it and go to Properties you will see its location, so you can make a convenient desktop shortcut to it if you wish.

You might have to temporarily show hidden files and folders (possibly protected files too) in order to create the shortcut. I would restore these views afterwards because, unlike XP, showing all files can result in various system files popping up in user areas.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Derek... I'm not sure whether your question is directed to me or not. My method provides a method of creating a shortcut to a programme in the OP's Program folder which will show in "All Programs" when he clicks there. He may not have discovered the "Startup" folder in "All Programs" as yet.

Nope, it was intended for the original poster - just an alternative approach.

I thought he might want a more accessible shortcut directly to the Startup folder, so that programs could be readily added or removed at will. I have done this on all my computers (XP, Vista, Win7) and find it quite handy for experimenting.

I might have misunderstood the question because I can read it more than one way.

I agree, the OP's question is double sided but I adopted the approach which I think he wanted. Unfortunately he will never (has not) respond so we will never know!

Click on Start and then on All Programs
You'll find the Startup folder enlisted in last few folders
