Why do I have 2 directory's for programs for my start menu ? 

  • C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
  • C:\Users\MyPCAccount\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

One is for programs installed for all users, the other is for programs only available to your user.

What one is for all users ?

The one that doesn't point directly to your user account. (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs)

No. All you can do is do move the shortcuts from either folder to the other one.
