(Not so) New Folder Locations

Since the advent of Windows Vista, the usual folder locations don't always apply. Take the Quick Launch or All Users Desktop, where did they go?

Here's a short list of what's been moved around (and yes, I'm writing this as much for me as anyone else)...

All Users:

  • All Users Desktop, Favorites, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures & Videos - C:\Users\Public

  • All Users Start Menu - C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

  • Documents and Settings (just for completeness sake): C:\Users

  • Templates - C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Templates

User Specific:

  • Cookies - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies

  • Default Outlook OST/PST folder - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

  • Quick Launch - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

  • Send To - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

  • Start Menu - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

  • Temp - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp

  • Temporary Internet Files - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
