If you look at the following screenshot: Notice how there are C drive contents like the WINDOWS dir, Prog. Files dir. etc. Same goes here in the Docs dir. (C Drive appears identical to the following image): Please excuse for the incorrect labeling I did in MSPaint ("Desktop" was supposed to read "C Drive" instead). Can there be a way I can hide them completely like it was back in the stock XP install? (I tried the trick that hid the XP Sidebar on the Desktop but did nothing)?
Guest posted a topic in Windows XPHas anyone succeeded in eradicating My Documents from Windows? I've tried in the past and not been successful. I tried again today and in addition to unregistering mydocs.dl, removing any and all to do with the My Documents system in the registry, I removed the mydocs.dll file. Still no go. Seems some of it is in shell32.dll. This thing just creates extra clicks for me since I don't use My Documents. I just want to see Desktop and My Computer when browsing for folder. I look into removing My Networks Places later. I haven't gone through Group Policy yet. Just thought I'd throw this out now hoping someone has some insight before I start the tedious task of digging through there. Thanks!
