You have helped me over the last week or two to set up my new Acer laptop and thanks to you all it is now working fine (thanks Buenchico)

One more thing I cannot fathom out! I transferred by memory stick all my Documents from the old laptop and now have them in a Documents folder on my desktop so I can click on it to see all my individual folders. However.......I seem to have two Docs folders!

When I for instance download a letter I have written and save it or a website and save it, it says 'saved to Documents' but does not show in my Docs folder on the desktop - instead it goes to another Docs file and I have to copy and paste from there to my main Docs folder on my desktop. This works ok but how have I got two Docs folders?

Thanks everyone

Moggie

Rename you folder on your desktop. Or copy the contents of your desktop fold to the one in your system and delete your desktop one, then put an alias of the system one on your desktop. You have 2 because one is part of your operating system and is there on your computer from the start. And then you have copied on from your stick to your desktop.

Exactly. Transfer all your desktop documents into the other one which is the default folder. You can, if you wish, create a 'shortcut' to that folder and leave that on your desktop.

Thanks Gromit and Slack Alice.
Have just this minute done what you suggested and it worked!
I understood what you said - there was a docs folder on the desktop when I opened the new laptop but I removed it and made my own!
Thanks again
