I have discovered by accident only - that the documents folder on my desktop that I have chosen to put my pictures in seems to be a mirror image of the Document folder that I go to by going to windows explorer
"My Computer" - "My Documents". If I add pictures to the desktop "document" folder it also adds it to the windows explorer "My Documents" folder - BUT if I add pictures to that folder it DOESN'T add it to the desktop "Documents" folder. I tried opening windows explorer and draging some folders from that document folder that weren't in the desktop doc. folder but it wouldn't let me - SOURCE & DESTINATION are the same. If I change the name of a picture in one folder it changes it in the other folder - if I delete a picture in one folder it automatically deletes in the other. How can I get the files that are in the internet explorer document folder over to the desktop document folder?????????

Hi 2wheelnana ... :) ..:)

the documents folder on your desktop is only a shortcut to the documents folder on your C drive...
