On the start menu you have the "Documents" link under the user name. Mine takes me to library link to My Documents but it won't keep the icons the right size. If I go via the start menu Document link then into My Pictures it keeps the icon sizes as medium. I prefer large icon sizes for My Pictures but if I change it and back up all my icons are then large size.

So, can I change the document link on the start menu from a library to a straight link to a folder where I keep my documents? Or delete it and add my own link instead?

It's just really annoying me now and I'm probably going to format my PC again tonight.

Ta for any help.

No problem...

Right click on the Windows Orb on the taskbar...
Then select Properties from the menu...
On the dialog's "start menu tab" click "Customize"...
Set it up as you need it.

For the icon size thing... If you set the icon size and/or display properties in a given folder and then close it, it will write a hidden file in that folder and remember your settings. The next time you come to that folder it should show up as you're used to.
