Hi everyone After having browsed the net for a while I am surprised to see that no proper solution has been given to this issue! Context: Microsoft Office saves a couple of things in a folder called Microsoft User Data located in Documents. Now considering that the latter is usually THE place where we have our personal stuff, it is very frustrating to have a useless thing polluting the visual space. My problem concerns Office 2008, but it seems (as seen around the net and in this MacRumors thread) that two solutions exist for some versions of Office/Mac: 1/ to move it to Users/ (YOUR USER NAME)/Library/Preferences/ 2/ to create a symbolic link which will link everything to a new location The solution 1 does not work in my case, as there is simply not such a place; the problem I see with symlinks is that it will still take a space in Document. Does anyone managed to move this folder??? Thanks a lot in advance!
