  1. C:\User folders


    Please respond to the following with your thoughts and recommendations since this setup looks WACKY to me:Note that I am the only person who has ever used my computer. No one else has ever created a User folder on it.There are five User folders under C:\Users in my File Explorer. Their properties are as follows:"Me",

    :)

    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions

    User's folder is not present in c:\\Users

    Putting aside your somewhat random use of forward, backward, and double slashes, please explain the difference between:

    • In Windows 7 Window Explorer, one cannot view the UserName folder
      in c:\\Users
    and

    • UserName folder, normally viewable from c://Users, can be still be viewed and fully accessed from UserName's Desktop
      via Window's Explorer
    Click Start, type C:\Users into the Search box, and press Enter

    Please list everything you see. If you would rather not reveal actual user names, use UserA, UserB, UserC, etc. Please mention whether view hidden files and folders is enabled or not.

    Is the name of one (or more) users missing from the list of items?

    Navigate to any document in the "UserName folder" that you can't see in C:\Users, then right-click and select Properties.

    What is shown as the document's "Location"? Again, if you want to use UserA rather than the actual name, that's OK.

    C:\User folders

    User folders in root C: drive

    In my new Windows 10, these folders were generated:

    • Intel
    • PerfLogs
    • Program Files
    • Program Files (x86)
    • Users
    • Windows
    Is there a policy of users generating new folders in this root C: drive?

    On my old W7 PC I had several folders in C:, providing a shorter path for applications.

    E.g. Is there an advantage when new Windows software is installed?
