    Hey all,

    I haven't been able to find an answer to this, but for some time my Macbook has been generating the default folders you usually see in Windows--My Music, My Videos, My Pictures, specifically. It bugs me to no end because I organize my files in a different manner.

    Is this a normal Mac function, or could it be being caused by one of my applications? The only two that come to mind are Crossover and Microsoft Word.

    I run a 13" Macbook with Leopard 5.2.

    Thank you!

    I believe it is a normal mac function. Some apps like iPhoto may do this and iTunes may also.

    Do they have the "My" prefix like in Windows? If not, they're OS X's usual behavior. If so, it's Crossover's fault, I guess.

    Yeah, they have the "My" prefix. It must be Crossover. Any fix for this, or will I just have to live with it?

    Either remove Crossover or live with it, yep.
