Start Menu

Vista Business. Where is Start Menu folder at?

In WinXP, it's at:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Start Menu
or
C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Start Menu

Where is the equivalent location in Vista?

Found it. Thanks.

Here's what I discovered. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Anything stored in the following location:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
is global (visible by everyone).
The equivalent location in WinXP is C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Start
Menu\Programs

Anything stored in the following:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
is only visible to %username%

I'm a Vista noob, btw.

I tried to search for "Start Menu" by right clicking C: drive but the option
"Search" isn't listed in the menu.
Vista is so different from XP.

Did you consider simply right-clicking on the Start Orb and selecting
either "Explore" or "Explore all Users?" Just as it behaved in WinNT,
Win2K and WinXP, the Explorer window opens to the location of the
respective Start Menus.
