Yes, User Files is the default setting. That was likely the problem.

In previous beta versions I could go to start and type in msconfig and it
would be there in the list. I use this to slim down startup programs.
Now it is not there in RC1. Does anyone know please how I can access
startup??

Just enter msconfig into Start Menu's search bar. It will find it
quick fast and in a hurry. Or, better yet, just put msconfig into
the search bar and hit enter- it will run it for you.

That is the problem - I am doing that but msconfig is not listed.

Start > type msconfig in the search box as before ;) If you have UAC turned
on, right-click msconfig.exe that appears at the top in the list and Run as
admin.

I just re-read your post. Seems you have already entered msconfig
into the Start Menu's search bar. Do you have indexing on?

You can also see startup programs from Windows Defender.

If indexing is switched on by default then it is on as I have not switched
it off.
I have managed to disable the program I wanted in defender settings I think,
thanks.
Still don't know where msconfig has gone though.

Thanks that got it. Still can't find it through normal search though, but
windows+R works just as good :)

Nice tip- forgot about the run box. I've gotten
use to running programs from the search bar.

your search settings will probably be set to "user files" if you set the
search options to "entire index" it will find msconfig
To change your search settings right click start, click on properties then
at the start menu tab click on "customise" scroll down the items and near
the bottom of the list you'll find search settings and just set it to
"entire endex and it's done.
