Invisible Documents folder

A user was trying to load a .jpg file as background image in PC-GIS X. “I know the .jpeg is in a folder i.e. ” Drawings ” , which is within ‘ Paper Port Documents ‘ which, itself, is found under ‘ My Documents ‘. When I try to ‘get to’ these sub folders, the program won’t allow it?”

This is an issue with “Documents and Settings” not being a real folder in the newer Windows operating system (e.g. Windows 7). It is a Junction that is used to interface legacy programs to the Windows 7 folder structure. If you are using Windows 7, please select C:\Users\*your user name*\Appdata or
C:\Users\*your user name*\Documents (or MY Documents) to perform the function of selecting Documents and Setting.
