Documents/My Documents showing up instead of users home folder name


Something that has driven me mad since Vista was introduced is the issue of going to a home folder share such as:

\\server\home\

and seeing a list of DOCUMENTS, DOCUMENTS, DOCUMENTS, etc, rather than George, Sarah, Zippy.

The fix, do in to these folders and delete the desktop.ini file (it’s a hidden system file so you’ll need to enable seeing these in Explorer view settings). Et voila, fixed.
