How to rename windows directory ?
    #2134557 - 11/25/03 11:40 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I want to rename the windows directory. I remember going into some options once where I could do lots of system things + rename %windir% or whatever it is, but I forgot wheres that. Now its WINDOWS and I want it Windows :smile: Peace, thanks in advance

I have one more question - There is a folder called Shared Documents that I dont like and want to remove it. But there is no option delete, its some kinda windows folder. How can I remove it?

Under WiNdOwS there is no difference between WINDOWS or Windows.

Under Linux there is.

If you know it, why don?t you then simply rename it to Windows?
