It's definitely interesting for those who don't want to make their own shortcuts, but while it has many folders under Doc-Settings\Admin and Doc-settings\AllUsers, I didn't see a shortcut to Doc-Settings\username, which is where much of my tinkering takes place. And stuff. like, say, your Fx profile is in that tree. Any special reason why no shortcut to username folder?

Magic!
Very simple and effective addition to the audit utilities on this machine. Just the utility for quickly drilling through those Windows directories, without having to make all your own shortcuts. Makes sure you don't miss anything, and I've just used it to audit CCleaner - which I rely on for day-to-day tidying up.
Just what a hassled admin needs.

It was in neither the home page snapshot nor in the list on the home page, although now I see on the home page that the sample list is for a machine where the only username is "Administrator".
