Default Unlisted stencils in Visio 2010

I've just replaced Visio 2002 w/ 2010 so that Visio may behave properly in Windows 10. The primary reason is to work on a drawing made in 2002 that used the Building Plan\Planting stencil. That stencil does not appear in the My Shapes listing. It does appear, however, in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Visio Content\1033 as PLANT_M.VSS. Along with a multitude of other .VSS files that don't seem to appear in shapes listing.

It is, of course, possible to add the ...\Visio Content\1033 folder as the location of stencils. But the the names provided in My Shapes are just the file names rather than the more descriptive titles of the stencils.

My question, then, is there any way to get a more complete listing of available stencils in the My Shapes listing? Or do I just have poke about in the 1033 folder when looking doe something in particular?
