    EDITED:
    Sorry. NEVER MIND THIS TOPIC. The issue disappeared without any apparent reason.
    I would delete this post, but I see no option to do so!
    ======================================================

    Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. Windows Explorer issue, not Internet Explorer.

    In my folder tree, there was a folder named "Documents" which contained no information at all. Note: I am not referring to the Libraries folder named "Documents!"

    All of my files are in custom-named folders, each of which is preceded by my 3-letter, initials caps.

    But, after deleting that redundant, empty folder named "Documents," Windows added a new bizzarre folder which I cannot get rid of. It has no information in it; it has no other right-click options except "Expand," and clicking that option doesn't do anything at all. There is no information in that folder.

    Why is it here?

    How do I delete it?

    (Please, see attached image showing my Windows Explorer tree with that strange folder in it.)

    Thank you for the reply, although it wasn't necessary.

    Actually, it wasn't SOLVED, it was RE-SOLVED by some unknown reason (it just vanished!), and wasn't solved by anyone on this forum. If I had marked it as SOLVED, any other users with the same issue would then be asking HOW it was resolved. heh heh. That's why I didn't mark it that way.

    It's strange to me that users can't delete a post they made as long as it hasn't yet received any replies. That would be logical to me, and also save confusion as well as disk-space on the forums. Mistakes DO happen from time-to-time. In my case, mistakes happen more often than that! :D

    Anyway, thank you!

    -- Larry

    By highlighting all your post and erasing it, then just say "Nevermind" and mark it as SOLVED, this will keep folks from stopping by:) Just a thought:)
