View Full Version : My Documents folder

Recently I have noticed that when using Word, Excel or Access clicking on the 'up 1 level' icon when in 'My Docs' folder takes me directly to 'Desktop' bypassing 'C' drive. It also occurs if I click on the My Docs' icon on the desktop screen.

A small but annoying problem.

I have Windows 98 and use Office 2000 applications

It appears someone may have dragged your 'My Documents' folder to the desktop. If you want to restore it, go into explorer and drag it back over the c: icon and drop it.

If you right click on the My Documents icon on the desktop, it will still be pointing to the right place. The phenomena you are witnessing is normal. I don't know how it works, but it works like this on every computer I have ever used. I don't know how you will get around it. Maybe, remove the my documents icon using something like tweakUI, and put your own shortcut there pointing to your my docs folder.
