you're just moving "shortcuts", it's no big deal. Unless of course, you're moving a shortcut of a shortcut.

The Start Menu is a combination of the items in "your" account and All Users account.

If you go to:

C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username\Start Menu\Programs

I'm willing to bet that you'll see Outlook listed there.

no i didnt i dont know why it does that but what i do is i open all users then i make folders. THen from there i drag the items from the acual start menu to the folders i want them in. To make out look express (which i dont even use) appear i draged it from the folder it was in under the start menu into the same folder in the open all users folder because the folder. Is that okay i may take up more space on disk but i just like them to be consistant with eachother for easier managment.


oh by the way in that location you gave me even less show none of the folders even show. i Just hope that i dont mess up my pc. thats all i need to know

Don't worry about taking up space. Each of those shortcuts are like 8kb.

Are there other users on the computer?

If you really want to know where that shortcut to outlook is, then right click on outlook in the start menu > properties > general tab > location
