Using installed Programs on Admin acct. with other users profiles Tags: Configuration Chrome Call of Duty Windows 7 Last response: January 23, 2012 2:28 AM in Windows 7 Share gerry410 January 15, 2012 7:09:21 PM Hello all, here I go again. I reinstalled the OS to a new SSD then installed everthing I need. I then created a 2nd user profile without Administrator credientials. I expected to open the 2nd profile and find all my installed programs. Some but not all are on the desktop. Specifically, Chrome - COD - GPU-z and a few others. Some but not all are there. WHY? Do I really need to reinstall Chrome / COD and the rest for each profile? Thanks all!

You can just pin a shortcut to the executable to your taskbar or drop a shortcut to the executable in your start menu. I just did this over the weekend. I installed steam under the admin account, and pinned a shortcut to it on the taskbar of a standard user account. Edit: During the installation of some programs, it will ask if you want to install for this user or all users. All users automaticall creates entries in every accounts start menu. m 0 l gerry410 January 23, 2012 2:28:53 AM Dosen't work for Chrome. All others yes.
