    Hello Mac Pros,

    I'm new to Mac so forgive. I've searched without a satisfactory answer to my concern.

    In my documents stack I have folders 1) Microsoft User Data and 2) Excel files.

    I'd like to remove them from stacks but each attempt I have tried will delete the folder. Since they are Office 2008 folders I'd like to retain the native file structure.

    What should (can) I do to eliminate these folders from the stack?

    Thanks in advance from a Mac newbie.

    Unfortunately, while this ability was demoed, it is not possible.

    Seriously??? :confused:

    I trust your word but that seems so lame. I should be thankful that the rest of my Office folders don't show up. :mad:

    You could make the folder invisible by using something like XRay

    This sometimes causes problems, I don't recommend it.

    Actually, I think what I did was move Microsoft User Data to ~/Library/Application Support/ and then place an invisible alias to it in the ~/Documents/ folder

    I hate apps that put folders in ~/Documents/ for no good reason.
