RE: Making applications available in different user accounts
I think I finally figured out a way to do this. I went into my
administrative user account. I right clicked on "my computer" and click
"explore" to open up all of the folders on the computer. I click on the
administrator account's "desktop" folder, where there are shortcuts to the
programs I want to share. I right click to copy the shortcut, and then open
the desktop folders of the other users I want to share the access with, and
To get to the other users' folders, you click on the "computer" folder on
the left hand side, then click on "users" and you should see the folders of
the other user accounts. Opening a user folder should show you a "desktop"
folder that you can copy to.
Hope this helps - it may not be the easiest way to do it, but at least it
worked for me.
