Hello
I usually keep all data in many folders on desktop. I would like to change desktop folder and move it to Nas Drive witch Raid. It will be perfectly if windows xp use that desktop folder from nas as he use now defautl xp desktop (C:\document and settings\user\Desktop)
It is possible ? How to do this ?
Thanks

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

There is a Desktop item there, but I have not tried messing with this.

There is no way to do this. The desktop would load before any network drives, so it will never find it.
