it would be handy to have the user configuration directory accessible from the nvda menu, as this would solve several problems. one is that sometimes, finding the icon in the start group can be a little hard, especially in windows 8.
how ever, a more important option this would give users, is the ability to open up the user configuration directory while using a temp version of nvda with the new repackaged nvda, so as they may apply app modules and global pluggons. this would then let them create a portable version, and copy the hole set of modifications over to the portable install. i would asume this would work for the installing of nvda as well.
it would perhaps be an option under the tools submenu.

As long as care is taken to warn of any breach of user security that certain combinations could present, this is a good idea and stops one having to either type in the path or navigate there manually. This is not so much of an issue with portable versions, as you have it in the main folder, but for installed versions its a time saver.

Just wanted to say, I totally agree with this as well.
