    I don't know of any way you are needing. However, there is a compromise, which may not be what you are looking for. I have five grandchildren, all of whom use one of the computers in my house on their visits. This is what I have done. Let us assume that you have two accounts you wish to isolate.
    Open Program Data - Microsoft - Windows - Start Menu.
    Create two new folders in "Programs", say gbalonek and other.
    Now open "programs" and carefully drag the item you need to each specific folder you have . Copy at this stage, do not move, in case you make a mistake.

    Now, when you open the "All Programs" you will find those two folders there, with contents. You can tidy up by dragging and dropping from withing the "All Programs" item.

    @ davehc, that seems a really long-winded way of doing it!!

    @ gbalonek, navigate your way to;

    A:\Users\Home\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu - This is other users' start menu.

    If you go to;

    A:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs - That'll be your start menu
