    Can my Local Settings folder in the Documents & Settings folder be unhidden and made to stay that way? I un-hide it, it allows me to uncheck the Hidden box (making it visible), and "apply to all of the files and subfolders." But then it always re-hides itself, the next time I go into Docs & Settings, it's Hidden again - so just unchecking Hidden isn't doing the job. Is it a protected system folder? If so, I'd only want this single one visible. Can I do this?

    Is there any reason you need to have this folder un-hidden?Most of the information and settings in this folder are easily accessible from the toolbar at the top of your screen

    Oh you're right, I don't have to...I will do it that way! I've always done it the long way and never changed the bad habit. Time for a change!

    I have a user that always clicks yes to save as when she opens an attachment in her email . well is saves it in the local settings\temp file. Well the issue is she can not gain access to that file to pull saved items out of. 1 how do I change it so it dosen't default to save to that location. and 2 how does she get to those files already saved to that location?
