| 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
| 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
| unless you have more than one drive on your computer).
|   If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show
| 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
|   6.. On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only
| 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
| Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders,
| Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders
| they are available to everyone who uses your computer.
|   c.. When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as
| 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
| unless you make them private.
|   d.. You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted
| NTFS. For information about converting your drive to NTFS, click Related
