Windows 7: Library - display order, arrange/sort by, default save location

26 Nov 2011   #11


Cleaned up TIF, delete everything (except some small offline content). No change. IE still points to my c \users \ Jim \ My Pictures library. It may be that IE simply uses the registry settings for shell folders, but then what's the point of libraries?
