Windows XP and Explorer

Easily Open Documents and Settings Folder

SUMMARY: This beats typing in the full path name to your Windows XP account's Documents and Settings folder.

Your Windows XP "Documents and Settings" folder contains all types of useful information about your account, including:

* Desktop icons
* Internet Explorer cookies
* Internet Explorer favorites
* Miscellaneous application data
* "My Documents" folder
* Start Menu settings

Normally, to get to this folder, you must run Explorer and access a folder name similar to "c:\documents and settings\YOUR USER NAME". That's a lot of typing or browsing. Here's an easier way:

1. Click "Start", selecting "Run".

2. When the "Run" dialog box appears, enter a period (.) and press the "OK" button or ENTER on your keyboard.

3. That's it!
