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

QUOTE Thanks

Use "Net" in the Utilities folder.

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