| And that's probably the best way to do it Bob.  At least in the Home version
| it is.

| | Hi Pam,
| | I did find this in the home edition.
| | It looks like a user can only make folders private, so one might have to
| put
| | icons on a desktop in a folder to make them private.
| | Here is what help says, so far:
| |
| | To make your folders private
| |
| |   1.. Open My Computer.
| |   2.. Double-click the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive
| (C:),
| | unless you have more than one drive on your computer).
| |   If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show
| the
| | contents of this drive.
| |
| |   3.. Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.
| |   4.. Double-click your user folder.
| |   5.. Right-click any folder in your user profile, and then click
| Properties.
| |   6.. On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only
| I
| | have access to it check box.
| |  Notes
| |
| |   a.. To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.
| |   b.. This option is only available for folders included in your user
| profile.
| | Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders,
| Desktop,
| | Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders
| private,
| | they are available to everyone who uses your computer.
| |   c.. When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as
| well.
| | For example, when you make My Documents private, you also make My Music
| and My
| | Pictures private. When you share a folder, you also share all of its
| subfolders
| | unless you make them private.
| |   d.. You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted
| as
| | NTFS. For information about converting your drive to NTFS, click Related
