Windows 7: My Documents documents are invisible to browser(s).

02 Apr 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate / Leopard OS X
My Documents documents are invisible to browser(s).

When I try to add an attachment to a new email on Gmail using either IE8 or Firefox 3.6.3, none of my documents in the My Documents folder are visible.

I do see folders and files with *.txt extensions and nothing else. My *.pdf, *.doc, and *.docx documents simply do not show up even with the "All Files" option selected.

It also occurred to me to change the folder options setting to show all extensions and files without success.

The documents show up just fine when I look for them in Explorer. Until I find a fix all I can do is copy the files to my desktop before adding them as an attachment.
