What's the short name for the user directory

By that i mean like %appdata% but for the current user directory... or maybe the documents directory?

Hello pltnfish,

%UserProfile% will open the C:\Users\(user-name) folder of the current user.

You could use %UserProfile%\Documents to open directly into the current user's My Documents folder.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
