    Under my name all folders appear i.e. contacts, desktop etc. However I can not see or access the apps folder. Is there a way I can enable my abiltiy to see and access this folder?

    Thank you, LTK

    There is no "apps" folder. The is the Program Files folder where much of the application-related stuff is stored, but you don't have direct access to it except as the Administrator -- which you're not unless you unhid the real "Admin" account.

    Well there is the application data folder in each user directory, which has been renamed appdata for vista.



    C:\users\%username%\appdata\



    Its a hidden folder by default, so youll have to unhide it or go into folder options (via control panel) and check the show hidden files and folders option
