Restoring Program Files Menu

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently was forced to uninstall windows and reinstall it due to some stability issues. That has been resolved, but i would like to know how i can restore my program files back to the start menu. They are all on the computer still, and i can access them through their alloted partitions, but i cannot get them to come up on the start menu. Does anyone have any ideas?

Well they no longer appear because they are Invalid shortcuts plus the Registry is New so to speak. If you want them to appear back on the start menu you have to manually go into the Program Directory and Find the .EXE for the program and Right click on it and Select...Show on desktop or Pin to start Menu.
