One of the things I do find amusing is this compat trick:
C:\Users\Terry>dir /A:H Documents Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 9278-0228 Directory of C:\Users\Terry\Documents 2015-02-28 20:24 0 Default.rdp 2019-08-14 21:31 402 desktop.ini 2019-07-02 23:22
My Music [C:\Users\Terry\Music] 2019-07-02 23:22 My Pictures [C:\Users\Terry\Pictures] 2019-07-02 23:22 My Videos [C:\Users\Terry\Videos] 2 File(s) 402 bytes 3 Dir(s) 295,411,253,248 bytes free C:\Users\Terry>;
A long time ago the content was like "\My Documents\My Pictures\". And then eventually when the concept of multiple users took off, we ended up with "%UserProfile%\My Documents\My Pictures" and so on, until we finally ended up with the modern path. Kindly, some Microsoftie decided '\Users' was a lot nicer than '\Documents and Settings' as far as prefixes go for where you store user profiles.
So while %UserProfile%\Pictures is the legit place on my modern system: if for some reason you still wanted to access them through the documents folder: hidden junctions will redirect you. Thus keeping old software working. Once upon a time this was probably important for keeping software written for Windows 95 and early NT working.
Curiously there is a hidden junction of "\Documents and Settings [C\Users]" at the top of my %SystemDrive% but there are none for the really-damned-old "\My Documents" at the top of the drive. I wouldn't be surprised however if compatibility trunks for older software faked those.
Also, I kind of feel glad that I haven't really touched a live Windows 9x install since the Pentium 4 was still sexy ^_^. That might sound less fun if you consider that I know where to reach for install discs that makes XP look young enough to be playing with Fischer Price.... but I'm not interested in running a virtual machine to jog the ol' meatbag memory.
