Please keep using the "My..." nomenclature for My Documents, My Vi

Posted: 08-30-2006, 05:24 AM
Please keep using the "My..." nomenclature for My Documents, My Videos, My
Picuters, etc. It took me awhile to like that, and one I accepted it,
started naming subfolders like My Finances, My Scripts, My Work Projects,
etc. As I developer, I even got coworkers to have our ISV application's
output work files go into <My Documents>\My EQuIS Work\ folder by default
(where EQuIS is the name of our custom app). So please keep using that and
don't drop the "My..."'s in Vista.

I HATED that from the first time I saw it. The new way is much better.

They have been abolished. Furthermore, given that RC1 has been released it
is pretty late in the game to change that.

You should use Windows API to get the folders. They can be even anywhere
else. And you could probably move them to your My folders...
But I also agree the current way is better.

(the non-my way). ;-) It is terrible to have another user's documents in
folder C:\Document and Settings\Administrator\Administrator's Documents.
