    where is .....\appdata\roaming ?

    Hello

    An old XP program I installed has put some files into a folder called
    C:\users\myname\appdata\roaming .

    I can find the folder using Vista 'search' facility, but not using explorer
    ??

    The program works OK and I have got a shortcut to the folder I need, but why
    does it not show up in explorer ?

    Thanks

    Disable 'show hidden files and folders' then go to
    C:>Users>myname>AppData>Roaming. It's here when I click on my
    C:\users\myname\appdata\roaming.
