I learned windows 95, 98, Millenium - but XP is getting to me! Under Documents and Settings, the OS keeps things in 4 separate areas (Administrator, Owner, All users, Mine by Name) with a "documents" (and favorites and start menu) folder in each PLUS 2 more further down called "shared documents" and again Mine by Name). Same for pictures: Adobe, My pictures, scanned HP solutions, etc. I'm getting terribly confused and feel it will make the computer run very inefficiently to have so many subdivisions: I am ONE person! Is there any way that any of you know of to SIMPLIFY the entire set up so things are more easily found? Would appreciate any advice...seems every version just makes things more and more complex and taking all the pleasure out of working by computer.
PS To each his own, as they say: another question: is it possible to turn off those silly, distracting, annoying emoticons things on the left as I try to write this?
