Document Directory

Posted: 09-30-2008, 03:47 PM
I use Vista Home Premium at home just for personal use. I do not use an
extensive file arrangement and was wondering how I can by-pass the
"users/Name" after the "C" prompt and go right to the documents. It is a
little annoying to go throught all the folder names when I do not use them.
Is there a way to do this? I appreciate your comments and suggestions.
Thand you
Gene L.

Add Documents to your Start Menu.
Right-click the Start Orb, choose Properties.
On the Start Menu tab, under Start Menu, click Customize.

Gordon:

Thank you for the quick reply. I am afraid that I do not know enough about
the system to "customize" it. Can you help me to do this?
Thanks

Do exactly what I said, and in the window that opens scroll down to
Documents and click on the button "Display as Link".

The button "Display as Link" is already checked and nothing seems to change
if the button is checked or not.

Then when you click on "Start" you should have a "Documents" item on the R/H
side of the Start pane that will take you directly to the Documents
folder...

Yes I do but that is not the problem. I am trying to by pass the
"Users,Name,Documents" folders and go directly to the documents themselves.

You can create a shortcut to a document.
Open the Documents folder,
right-click on a document,
drag it to the Desktop, and select "Create Shortcuts Here"
