Ever since Microsoft first introduced the “My” in every folder I have hated it. I know it’s my documents and my music, hell I paid for most of the music anyway and created the documents myself. So why do they continue this, even win Win7? If you look at the real name in the folder structure it is actually C:\Users\[username]\Documents not C:\Users\[username]\My Documents?
I know it can make some sense when you compare My Documents and Public Documents but I don’t like it that way, especially since the real folder name is in fact Document.
So I started to look into it and experimenting, searching through registry values and stuff with no luck. Searching the web also came up empty handed (just a lot of references to how you change the default My Documents folder, etc).
But actually it was much simpler that I expected, I just selected the damn thing and changed the name in properties. Renamed it to Documents and now it really make sense again. So I can have some peace.
