    Lost 'My Documents' folder (WinXP SP-2)

    That folder seems to be gone.

    I tried running a repair in TweakUI, but that didn't help...

    I tried restoring an old layout, but nada.

    I don't know how or why it's gone, but

    How do I get "My Documents" back on the desktop?

    Regards,

    Have you only lost the desktop shortcut to My Documents, or has the folder itself disappeared?

    Try this:
    - Right-click an empty part of the desktop.
    - Select Properties from the popup menu.
    - Activate the Desktop tab.
    - Click "Customize Desktop".
    - Activate the General tab (if necessary).
    - Tick the check box for "My Documents".
    - Click OK.
