    Can't drill down to Profiles folder in XP Home using windows explorer. I can on another desktop using XP Pro. How can I work around this problem.

    I'm trying to reach my Profiles folder in Thunderbird.

    flcajun, That Application Data folder is a hidden folder by default. Go into Folder Options and under the View tab choose Show hidden files and folders, click Apply/OK.

    Start>Control Panel>Folder Options

    OR

    Open Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder Options.

    Yes I understand that Application Data folder is a hidden folder by default, and I un-hide all folders when I set up my computers. any other ideas ?

    Have you tried:
    Start> Run> type: %APPDATA% and hit OK.
    Then open Thunderbird> Profiles
