According to the MS forums, to move My Documents:

Click start -> Computer

Double click C: -> Users -> "your profile"

Right click Document, left click on properties.

Click on the location tab and set it to your network drive of choice.

When you click apply, it will move everything to the new location.

Re; Icon Size. I suspect the icon size or overall zoom level was changed
on one of the profiles. Try Control-scroll wheel to zoom the size.

Just another painful experience with M$ Vista/Windows 7.
I have done the same as you with XP and it worked a treat haven't tried
with
Vista but I have had other issues that I'm working through.

Strange differences in desktops between different user profiles on a
laptop.

There must be a setting I'm missing but one shows small icons as small
icons
and another shows small icons as medium icons.

No major issue just an irritation for consistency.

Subject: [PCTECH] Weird one - hard to title...

Hi Folks,

This is happening on Windows 7 Pro.

We move the location of My Documents to the server to back up Desktop,
Favorites, Documents, etc.

We map folks to H:\ as their home folder

Well this didn't cause any problem in XP Pro but in Windows 7 if you try to
install software it comes up with an error pointing to H:\ not being
valid...

I was assuming this has to do with environment variables so I changed both
to C:\ rather then the concatenated version Windows defaults to.
That did not work.

I've TRIED finding a solution via Google but am apparently not hitting on
the right wording,

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Chuck
