Windows 7: Libarary locations?

I ain't a genius
One location is simpler, but if something gets put where you don't expect then you won't see it.
I'd rather see it, and move it if i need to.

Yea, sometimes an accidental click can do something unexpected.
Then the fun is trying to figure out how to undo that click.
Cats are good at doing unexpected clicks

I personally do it like David does it. If by chance something goes goofy their are many roads to help find things and solve the problem. It also make it easy to copy or move things around if one care to.

Don't be too modest.

You mean to imply am a cat lol.

Now DavidE you, and Laybackbear are too smart, I understand there importance but shall take me weeks on how to create more than 1 places and its functionality.

For me I think 1, as suggested by ThrashZone is fine??

Wish I could learn how 2 similar MS Word articles on 2 PCs could be synced.

Thanks again!!

Yea all you would need to do is drill down for the public area if you ever come up missing anything
I've never had anything come up missing though

Some programs do install stuff in the public folders area which is pretty weird
Chasy's draw a photo creation and editing/ viewer tool and NVidia 3D viewer otherwise it should just contain windows sample folders which can be deleted.

No problem
Believe it or not a lot of people get rid of libraries :)
Libraries Folder - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

I personally don't mind them.
But to get to your user folders instead of libraries
Just click Start and click on the user name listing near the top under you user picture

You'll then see all of your user folders

I'm pretty much at default I really see no need to mess with what is indexed
