Where are cookies with IE7?

IE6 had an option to view the cookies but I don't see that in IE7. Does anyone know where the cookies are kept?

You can view cookies in IE7 temp files>settings>view files BUT ---
if you go to the C:\Documents and settings, it is hard to find the cookie folder. That folder is now a hidden folder and you have to enable the folder view option to show hidden folders and to display protected operating system files in order to see your cookie folder.

Location of Cookies.
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

I didn't find them there. But in searching around in Local Settings I did find a hidden folder called Cookies and found them there.

Thanks for the hint.

Correction, I found some files in Cookies and some in Temporary Internet Files. The actual Cookies seems to be in Temporary Internet Files. I thought EE would drop a cookie and didn't see one. But I did see where EE drops files into Cookies ... hence the confusion.
