    How to make programs available to certain users

    I just got Windows 8, and there are some programs that I want exclusively on my account. We have two accounts set up so far, and I just don't want to clutter up the other user's desktop with my stuff. Is there a way to assign a program to certain users?
    Thank you.

    First watch installation routine, most have "install for this/all users" It might hide in default/custom installation.
