I have a problem with my GIMP Photo Manipulation software, not being able to Save.

I'm told to rename my Gimp Profile. How do I access my Profiles. If I could delete the folder, I could reinstall the software.

Thanks much,

In Vista, Windows 7 and later versions:
(ie, a “sibling” of “Application Data” and “My Documents”)





You may need to tell windows to let you see it:


Open the Control Panel menu (View Large Icons) and click Folder Options.
    After the new window appears select the View tab.
    Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
    Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.
    Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide file extensions for known file types.
    Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
    Press the Apply button and then the OK button and exit My Computer.
    Now your computer is configured to show all hidden files.
