Temp files

On my old Windows OS my temp files were stored in C:\windows\temp

Although I've found them in XP under local settings etc.... they are hidden, and if I change the attributes, the come up hidden again on reboot. Is there an easy way to set my temp folder back to where I want it and for it to remain "unhidden" ?

Cheers,

hi rapscallion

welcome to xp-erience

this is my work around

1. change your start menu to classic
2. open the folder local settings
3. drag n drop the temp folder onto the start button
this gives the folder cascading attributes
4. cut & paste the the folder from *C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Start Menu* to a directory of your choice
you can do the same to any folder hidden or not

:cool:

2Z - Why go through all that when all you have to do is change the environment variable, as the prior post points out?
