Using Windows 7, when I go to
Start -> All Programs I can see the full structure and all of the shortcuts, but when I click on one, nothing happens. I navigated to:
and the majority of the "All Programs" structure is missing.
I found if I clicked a shortcut under the "All Programs" menu that also existed in the backend "AppData" tree, everything works as expected.
What would cause Windows to place the program shortcut under
Start -> All Programs, but not create an actual shortcut behind the scenes? Is there a registry entry that determines where these shortcuts are created?
