Hey, thanks in advance for your help, I value your expertise.

I just had a quick question regarding folder options....

Like a moron, I just deleted my main documents folder (it had nothing in it) under my home folder. Now I don't know how to re-enable/recover it! Is there an option to do this, or do I have to recreate it myself? And if I do have to recreate it, will the system see it as the same thing? Because in windows I know the My Documents has a specific function...

Helpo this n00b!

Open a finder window (or press command-n), click Home (or the name of your Mac icon) You will see a Documents folder, drag that into the sidebar.


You wouldn't have deleted the actual folder, just the alias.

Ummm, there's no documents folder in the home folder (my name). It was gone the moment I deleted it out of the sidebar....not sure what to do at this point. Thanks for the response though, I appreciate your advice.
