    Hi everyone...

    stupid MS Office and Acrobat are putting a Folder with "User Data" in my "Documents"-Folder every time I start one of their programms. Found no way to hide them or to move them.. next time I open MS Word X... its back where I dont want it...

    Anyone know a way around that ?
    I like my Documents-Folder neat and organized...

    Thanx

    RiotMac, thanx for the reply... seems like we are somewhat left alone with our problem... probably noone here that can solve it. What a pitty!

    I had this problem in Windows XP... apps would keep recreating the bloody "My Pictures", "My Music", and "My Everything Else" folders that I didn't want anything to do with. Then in GNU/Linux, it was the "evolution" folder that insisted on being visible in my home directory. And now I have the same problem in Mac OS X with its "Music", "Pictures", and "Movies" folders.

    I think the last time I had a nice clean home directory that I felt in control of was when I used Windows 95, or perhaps DOS 6.0/Win 3.1 before that.

    It's trying to instill some tidyness and for some people it's a good thing. If it iritates you it sucks that it seems to want to control you...
