Vitis installation on Windows problem and getting started questions

First some getting started questions.

A couple years ago I developed a bit of C code for a MicroBlaze on a Digilent Artix development board using Vivado. Now I want to develop some C code for a MicroBlaze on another FPGA (not yet decided, maybe Spartan-7?). I have a Spartan-6 FPGA Embedded Kit at hand to practice and get familiar with the tools. My questions are:

Does Vitis provide a great advantage over the Vivado tools? Is it worth learning Vitis for some relatively simple C on MicroBlaze (with no OS) development?

Can I use the Spartan-6 board with Vitis or Vivado 2019.2 to develop C code on MicroBlaze? If not, what development kit would you recommend for easiest getting started experience (good tutorials, works with current tools)?

Now my installation problem: I downloaded and ran Xilinx_Unified_2019.2_1106_2127_Win64.exe on a brand new Windows 10 Pro laptop (no previous Xilinx sw installed). Vitis and Vivado appeared to download and install without problems, using the license file shown below. I see lots of stuff under C:/Xilinx/Vitis/2019.2/ and C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.2/ . The problem is that I don't see a Xilinx Design Tools folder in my Start menu.

What do I need to do to complete the installlation?
