gah I was trying to open a movie through VLC, I went browse then accidently clicked on my name folder and moved it to somewhere, but it's not in Finder under Places anymore

When I click on Finder in the Dock, it brings up finder box, but it's not finder it's actually my name folder.

How do I find my folder and put it back under Places in Finder?

thanks
Jenn

Why don't you search for it? I'm assuming you're talking about your home folder, right? The folder that looks like a house? Do you remember what your user folder was called? It was probably just your name...or whatever username you chose. Just search for it typing it in the search box in the finder, or hit Command/Space Bar to bring up Spotlight. Once you find it, copy it and place it in this path: Macintosh HD/Users.
