Creating user accounts

I want to create 2 new user accounts with access to the same programs of the main user but when I do create them, the Icons and Program Lists are not the same, they're a much shorter lists. What am I doing wrong?

Those menus and shortcuts are in 2 places. The user and the ALL USERS (menu and folder.)

Place shortcuts you want in ALL USERS (remember right click on the start button?) and viola.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
