Server Folder tip

Tuesday’s Technology Tip
(Little bits of information to hopefully make your computing life easier)

On a Dell, My Documents on the desktop is not your real server folder on the network. When you open My Documents, you see all the documents in your server folder, but they are really only shortcuts. Your “true” server folder is found by double-clicking My Computer, and then double-clicking “username” on ‘all\staff\heimmiddle’. Why does this matter? There are occasional times where documents do not behave as you expect if you try to open or save via My Documents. To be safe, always open or save documents via My Computer -> ‘username” on all\staff\heimmiddle.
