    Hi,

    My wife accidentally deleted the Personnal "Downloads" folder permanently.
    When notice that these personnal folders are not ordinary folders as it
    contains a "Location" tab in it's property menu.

    How can I create a new "Downloads" folder or restore it if it is no longer
    in the recycle bin?

  2. You don't need to worry about it. Remember, you use Ubuntu!

    Can't you just go to the users account where is was originally located,
    right click/new folder. Then rename it to Downloads.

    That's the simplest idea none of the idiots including the Spanky ever
    thought of.

    I actually recall that Downloads folder was absent on one of my Vistas and I
    created it by precisely this simple, simple, simple method.

    This is what it means to be a Vista boy (Frank). Clear mind and all.

    Oh boy!

    Frank reveals that he knows how to create a folder and AlexB thinks
    Frank's a genius. LOL! Two idiot peas in a pod.

    hair on your palms but fuzz on your brain as well.

    Cheers.

    No, my point was that on the bag round of completely marasmic whining about
    Vista Fran was the ONLY ONE who offered the simplest, fastest and workable
    solution.

    You, Al-Alias on the other hand do nothing to enhance the value of this
    group or help people. Frank does, as he just demonstrated.

  11. In the 'Run' dialog, type:

    shell:downloads<Enter>

    You will get an error message. OK that. Log off. Log back on. Repeat the
    above & the folder should be recreated & open.

    Don't know why it takes two rounds but it does.

    You're calling Frank "Fran" now? How sweet. Telling someone how to
    create a folder is not exactly rocket science,
    Who dat?
    No, he doesn't. All he does is post lies, insults, profanity and
    bluster. I help people here by offering a viable alternative to the
    crappy Vista. You offer dangerous suggestions that could mess up
    computers and you should leave post haste.

    Oh, did you or did you not molest your children?

    That's your trip, Frank, not mine. All my children have successfully
    graduate from college with honors except one that's in the second year,
    also getting honors.

    Congratulations Alias. Good job. That should offer some inspiration for
    Francis. If he works really really hard, he might make it through Grade 4
    in the next year or two. Then with more effort, he might eventually make it
    into college. I'm sure they offer courses in college for seniors.

    Cheers.

    Sure they are. The world would be lucky if an idiot like you did not
    ever reproduce. If you did I only hope you didn't molest them. If you
    did molest them I only hope the authorities get your sick ass really soon!

    Will this method allow someone to create an additonal personal folder (for
    instance, "Scans") that contains a location tab in its properties menu?

  18. No, it only works for the pre-defined user folders.

    Too bad. Being able to create your own Personal Folders in the location you
    want would be great!

    I found this thread while searching for the same answer. I was able to
    create a new downloads folder but it had the yellow folder icon and I
    wanted the original green icon restored.

    I accidentally discovered that if I changed the name of the new
    "Downloads" folder to "My Downloads" it changed the folder icon back to
    green and is just called "Downloads"

    Don't know why that worked, but it did and certainly is simpler than
    messing around with any deeper controls. ;)

    Cheers.
