Documents Problem In Windows

by zota1 / March 4, 2007 1:52 AM PST

On my family computer at home we all have our own logins and use our own file space. we have all our files set as public so that any of the users can access each others files, e.g i can access my sisters pictures she can access my music and so on. we accessed all this by going into mny computer and then under files stored on this computer and then clicked on whatever persons files we wanted to access, but recently my sisters folder disappered from the list and the only way to get to it is through Documents and Settings > Katrina > Katrina's Documents and then the files are there. but this is a very annoying way of doing it, all the other users work (mine, my dads and my mums) but to get my sister i have to go the long way round. her files are not set as private i dont know why i cant access them the easy way. Any ideas?

Why not make a shortcut to there?

Your post was unclear where this list was. But XP and most versions of Windows allows you to make a shortcut to that directory.
