    Documents & Settings folder in Win 7

    Two days into Win 7 and getting more and more confused! Has D & S disappeared or is it just my ignorance in being unable to find it? Can anyone tell me how to find it using Explorer?

    Thanks

    D&S is now just a junction point in Win 7. It is no longer an operator accessed folder. Many of the functions that were here in XP are now under Users/"UserName" folder. These junction points can only be seen if you choose to unhide hidden system files.

    Check this thread for some additional help.

    Ted is correct that it's a hidden file, but not a system file. Tell your computer to shown hidden files, folders and drives and you'll be okay. D&S will now be C:\Users\"username".

    Another thing that's hard to find initially is "add/remove programs" is now "Programs and Features".
