Walt, Open Regedit.exe and navigate to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders Double-click "My Pictures" and set the data to "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Pictures" Note that it should be of REG_EXPAND_SZ type. If it's REG_SZ then, delete the "My Pictures" value and re-create it. -- Ramesh Srinivasan MS-MVP, Windows Shell Windows XP Troubleshooting http://www.winhelponline.com "Walt G" <email@example.com> wrote in message news:uT5zxqmbFHA.firstname.lastname@example.org... > The My Pictures entry on my wife's start menu points to my daughter's > picture folder.
