Windows 7: Windows 7 Libraries/Documents

Windows 7 Libraries/Documents

Hi All,

In Libraries/Documents for example, it points to 2 REAL Folders My Documents and Public Documents, but when you click on Libraries/Documents you see files for both places and if you click on any of the files, there is no path info to let you know "At a Glance" where the file is really located.

Now looking through Windows 7 Inside Out Book, they have screen shots of files in the Libraries/Documents folder with the "Full Path" under the filename in what appears to be "Content View." Any idea how they got the "Full Path" to show up under the filenames?

Hello Joe,

You could add the Path column in that window to be able to see the true paths of them.

Hope this help,
