When you setup the user accounts, did you set them up to be seperate from the other accounts? you need to set them up to share apps.

OR... you can just copy paste shortcuts to desktop.... up to you though.

also some programs when you install them it has an option to install it for your self or all users on this computer, make sure you tick the right box

also sometimes it doesnt show up in the start menu but since its installed on that machine just go to the root drive and put a short cuz on the users desktop that it needs to be on.
