I've recently started making sure to use the %appdata% variable when referring to the user "appdata\roaming" location - side effect of working at a company where the location may vary (possibility of roaming profiles enabled to store stuff in alternate locations).

And "appdata\local" is, you guessed it, %localappdata%

And for the "all users profile", well, %allusersprofile%

Then you just need to know that the start menu is under "microsoft\windows\start menu"

For the record, I despise the way Microsoft has essentially hidden the start menu starting in Win8.

My go to program on my personal machine is the lovely "Classic Shell" ... adds the start menu back. No longer supported, but works on Win10 just fine.
