I would like the "DOCUMENTS" folder (which I believe was originally "My Documents") to be in the place of the "Documents" folder. I would like to retain the menu functionality (or the small arrow to the right of both documents folders). Please help, thank you.

Hey Pink. Actually the reg tweak is needed. Read my 1st post thoroughly and you'll see what's up. Have a good one :)

all good, the wording in my second post was definitely confusing.

    XP was my idea. 3rd party apps make NT6 my idea.

In Windows 7, the Start Menu always only links to Libraries. If you use Classic Shell, you can directly link to "My Documents" bypassing the Libraries.

Impossible to run NT6 without third party fixes.

Good to know, I'll check out that program. But if Classic Shell is not being used, the reg tweaks above do the job.
