    Allow another user access to program?

    I installed a program as an administrator. I want 2 of the 3 users on my
    computer to have access to it, but the only time it shows up in the start
    menu is when I'm logged in as an administrator. How do I give other users
    access to it? The so-called "Help" suggestion is to right click on the
    program, go to Properties, click on the Security tab, and then click on
    "Manage Users". Well, there is no "Manage Users" on the security tab and
    there is no button or tab that will allow me to add users to the ones
    currently allowed to use the program.

    Someone, please help.

    Right click the shortcut for the program and select Properties/Security Tab.

    In the "Groups and Users" section, select the account that you want to give
    privileges to and click the Edit Button. In the bottom section, place a
    check mark in the Allow Column/Full Control Box. Apply/OK. Do this for each
    user account that you want to have access to this program.

    After this is complete, right click the shortcut to the program and select
    Copy. Right click the Start Button and select
    Explore All Users. Select the Programs Folder there and right click and
    Paste the shortcut. This will place a copy of the shortcut into the
    Start/All Programs in every user account.

    Ronnie - The accounts I want to give privileges to don't show up in the
    "Groups and Users" section. How do I add them?

    In the Security Tab, click the Advanced Button at the bottom. Click the
    Permissions Tab. If you still don't see those accounts, Click the Edit
    Button.

    On the next dialog box, click the Add Button. In the "Enter the object name"
    box, type the exact name of the account you wish to add to the list.

    Click the Check Names Button and then click OK. Another box will pop up,
    select the Full Control box in Permissions. Start clicking the OK buttons
    until your out of there.

    Reboot and log on with that user to check.
