    My Computer Display (Windows XP Sp 1)

    I am fairly new to Windows Xp. I noticed the in the MY Computer display, two document folders are displayed. One is entitled "Shared Documents". The other is entitled "Mike's Document". Is it possible to add other Document folders to this display, and if so how do I accomplish this task?

    1. To add other user Documents folder is possible only if your account has administrative rights.

    2. Under "My Computer" you can see only drives and special folders (My Documents, Shared Documents). However, it is possible to trick your computer to show folders as drives. To do so:

    - Open Command Prompt (Start | All Programs | Accessories | Command Prompt or press Windows and R keys, type CMD and hit Enter).
    - When in Command Prompt (window with black background), type the command SUBST with appropriate swithces. The syntax is:

    SUBST Drive 1: Drive 2ath
    Example: You want to show folder Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataQuickTime as drive U: Type
    SUBST U: "c:documents and settingsall usersapplication dataquicktime"

    SUBST Drive1: /D - deletes a substitute (virtual) drive.
    Example: To remove drive U: type
    SUBST U: /D
    (make sure you put a blank space after SUBST and U

    I hope it will help you.
