    Don't want to save your pictures in 'My Pictures' anymore?

    1_ Go to your startup menu and open the run command.

    2_ Type in regedit

    3_ Follow these folders:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    \Software
    \\Microsoft
    \\\Windows
    \\\\\CurrentVersion
    \\\\\\Explore
    \\\\\\\\User Shell Folders

    Make sure you open USER SHELL FOLDERS and NOT just SHELL FOLDERS.

    4_Delete the Key for "My Pictures"
    4_Create a new string value called "My Pictures"
    Set its value to "cImages"
    (assuming "cImages" is the path to the folder that contains your images)

    What operating system is this tip for?

    I use XP and I don't think you need to do this here. If I put images into a folder, I can choose if I want to see them as thumbnails or tiles or even 'filmstrip'. Regardless of what folder I put them into.

    Or is there some other reason for putting them in a 'special' My Pictures folder?

    Yes and I have been trying to figure this out forever!


    It saves me exactly 13 mouse clicks. I have my folder buried way to deep, but now it doesn't matter.

    Thanks Davi!

    Yeah, because you can't go anywhere else.
