Sharing Programs With Other Users In Windows Vista

Windows Vista was launched by Microsoft as a successor to Windows XP. Although the operating system boasted of several advanced options, it failed to get the same acceptance as its predecessors. Moreover, many users just found this operating system as an extended version of Windows XP with an addition of a few features. An interesting option in Windows Vista is that it helps the users to share programs with others easily. However, some users fail to access this option and end up calling the Windows Vista help center for assistance.

You can use the following instructions to share programs with other users in your Windows Vista computer.
  • First and foremost, you need to login to the program. Now, you can right-click on the Start menu and choose Open. Now, double-click on the Programs folder.
  • Next, you would need to search for the folder that comprises of the programs you have installed in the system. For sharing a specific program in your Windows Vista computer, you need to go to the particular folder that contains the file. 
  • According to the Windows Vista help and support team, the users might need to click and search a bit to find the folder they require.  However, ensure that you select the correct folder that contains the shortcuts.
  • In the next step, you need to right-click on the folder and select Copy. Then, you can navigate to the All Users Programs folder. 
  • You need to right-click on Start and then select the Open All Users option. Here, the Windows Explorer option will help you to access the Start Menu folder for All Users.
  • Next, you can double-click on the Programs folder, which will take you to the All Users Programs folder. Here, select the option Paste and then paste the contents you had copied earlier. Meanwhile, you can also contact the Windows Vista help and support team anytime to get more information on the Vista operating system as well as assistance on accessing this option in the OS.
