I try to keep the folder structure the same in all 4, so that data backup routines don't have to be rewritten. I'm going to follow your advice and move fmy icons folder/subfolders from prog files, but not to Users, because I really dislike looking at a folder structure that has subfolders called music, Pictures and Videos, none of which I use, but none of which I can remove, no matter how hard I try!
    You can delete those folders. You just have to remove them from the library first.

    Oh, my! Wonderful. I've done it. Thank you so much for the steer.

    I looked at the link abt moving Users folder, not because I seriously wanted to, just out of interest. I wouldn't be able to anyhow, at least not following the route in the tutorial, because I upgraded to Pro from straight 8, and the method doesn't work with upgrades. But it's nice to know it can be done....

    All the best
