Hi gurus,

I recently have installed windows 8. It works great so far for me. Currently, I have an administrator account and a normal user account.
What i noticed here was, whenever i install a software on the administrator side (for eg: Spotify), it does not go into program files but another folder : C:\Users\JohnDoe\AppData\Roaming or LocalUser...

And on the User side, it will not show the program that I have installed in the administrator side. I tried doing the application search type on the metro, it does not show anything up at all.
Usually when I install software, some application has a setting where it says install for all users, but this time there are software that does not have that options,and I would like whatever I have on the admin end to show up on the user end. Anyway I can do that?

Any ideas how can i do that?

Thanks!
