Hi,

Can someone guide me how to link My documents to my users home directory.

Would it be in folders or registry part of preferences? so far we were doing that in the group policy.

also if i can get some good links to learn about GPPs would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the prompt reply KCTS,

I am using folder redirection right now in Group policy. My question is if I can do this through Preferences?

You may be able to do it as a Regedit under Preferences. The following is a the reg location.

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

You may also want to look at this site to see if it helps.

You can do it through preferences but why? Folder redirection is designed to redirect parts of the user profile to server locations.
