[Guide] How to access appdata quickly & easy

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A quick way to access: C:\\Users\\[user]\\AppData\\Roaming.

1. Go to any windows explorer window (my computer, my documents, my pictures, ect).
2. Type "%appdata%" without quotes, and hit enter.


It will take you directly to that folder.



A quick way to delete the data for an EUE

Edit:
Additional commands (Thanks Ictinike)

Code:
Variable                        Typical value (May vary, depending on system)

Not to steal your thunder Mort but just an addition to your excellent post

%HOMEDRIVE%              C:
%HOMEPATH%              Documents and Settings{username}
%PATH%                     C:WindowsSystem32;C:Windows;C:WindowsSystem32Wbem
%PATHEXT%                .COM; .EXE; .BAT; .CMD; .VBS; .VBE; .JS ; .WSF; .WSH
%PROGRAMFILES%         Directory containing program files, usually C:Program Files

%SYSTEMDRIVE%          The drive containing the Windows XP root directory, usually C:
%SYSTEMROOT%          The Windows XP root directory, usually C:Windows
%TEMP% and %TMP%    C:DOCUME~1{username}LOCALS~1Temp

%USERPROFILE%           C:Documents and Settings{username}

Of course some of these are used more in DOS mode or for batch/VBS scripts.

Cool, I'm glad it's useful. I was getting tired of going through the folders to get the the Roaming folder...

LOL. I don't think that philosophy is the best, especially when it comes to computers.
