Is it possible to create a desktop item that behaves like "my documents" on the desktop? I want to have something like "my download" that behaves like "my documets" on the desktop
That would be easy. Right click the desktop, "New" and select "Folder". Name it "My Downloads". Right click that folder, click Properties. Then click on the "Customize" tab. Next, under Folder Icons, click "Change Icon" and browse at your leisure.
I mean not that kind of simple folder. If you right click "my docs" you can target it to any folder. I want that kind of ability for "my download" and the other "my..." that I may create
Oh - I don't belive that's possible. Sorry. You can make the folder in "My Documents" and right click it, send to, Desktop as shortcut.
