How to locate Start Menu items in the file system...

Copper Contributor

.. NOT the StartUP Menu, which is in \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup - the Start Menu folder? I've been Googling for 1/2 an hour and all of my search results bring me to articles about how to find the Startup folder. I want to manually organize the Apps listed in my Start Menu. Where can I find that?


IIRC, I found a while ago that there are actually several file system locations that affect what shows up in the Start Menu, but I believe that was back in early Win 10 days, so maybe they cleaned that up.

I did find some of the Start Menu items in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs (part of the above path), but that's not all of them by any means.
