Help to find documents

  johnem 22:31 24 Sep 2008

Running XP Pro SP2 and Office 2007. there are four users of this machine, each with their own respective "My Documents". If I click onto "My Computer", it displays three of the users documents folder but not mine. This does not matter which user I am signed in as. For some reason the folder "Johns Documents" is not displayed. If however I click on the "D" drive "Documents and Settings" where all of the "My Documents" folders live, I can see all four of the users documents. I realise that at times XP does its own thing, but is there a simple explanation or hopefully a fix please.

This is a well documented problem on XP. Try this tweak, but remember to back up the registry first

Sea Urchin, thank you for the link. I will give that a try a little later.
