I am a long time programmer and computer science professor, since 1979.
I grew up with the command line and like it just fine.
But Windows 7 seems to change the GUI way of doing things and not mess with the command line.
Yesterday I was at the command prompt and went to C:\users\Stockwell
and then did a "dir". I saw several directories, but there was no "My Documents" listed. I did
cd "My Documents"
and it worked!
Then I copied over several .xls files from a USB key. I did a dir to see them.
It showed nothing!
Then I ran Excel 2003 (I can't stand Office '07!) to open them -- and they all showed up in My Documents and I opened them.
What the hell gives here?
