Hi al. I have Classic Shell on my own windows 7 system and am visiting my folks. They HATE Vista and so I installed Classic Shell.

But I cannot for the life of me figure out what setting I need to change to get the My Documents and My Computer folders back onto the desktop.

Lacking those two essential folder shortcuts is absolute madness. i know I can drag and drop shortcuts, but that is not the same thing as having them there by default. I (and my folks) like to have our PC's look as close to the old old Windows 98 desktop as possible.

I appreciate help in this matter and yes, I did do a search.

:P

Right-click the desktop, go to View>Show Desktop Icons and be sure its checked

then Right-click again and select "Personalize" and in the left column, select "Change Desktop Icons"

Click the Box before any items you want on your desktop, and click ok

Also deselect "Allow themes to change desktop icons" at the bottom
