    Assigning Root Folder to User Accounts
    Hi, just having a small nightmare here and wondered if anyone could help..?

    I have logged on to my mac today to discover that the root folder has changed on one of my accounts. The desktop and doc have changed and I have to navigate in the 'users' folder to find my documents etc. Very strange!?

    How do I say 'here is my documents! not there!' (pardon the non technical lingo). I think what I am trying to say is 'how do I assign a root folder to an existing user account so that it defaults to that folder all the time?'

    Hope that makes sence!? Many thanks

    Answer:

    Use "Net Info.app" in the Utilities folder.

    Select your user, navigate down to the home folder section and change it to whatever you like.

    Sweet
