Windows 7: User Profile question

User Profile question

I have a profile on my computer called Woody. I have moved my "My Documents" folder in the Woody profile to C:\data. When I did this it automatically named it "C:\My Documents". But this is not what I wanted so in the General tab for that folder I changed it from "My Documents" to "Data". I have done this on a couple of other windows generated sub folders for User Profile Woody.

Is there a way to get a list of the new locations and their names for these moved folder? I can remember now but later I may not be able to remember. I think there may be some sort of system variable that will tell me but if there is, I don't know what it is.

Hello Splawn,

You can see them in this registry location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Hope this helps,
