Cookies folder

There is no cookies folder on my XP professional with SP3. At one time it
was in system 32/config/systemprofile/Cookies, but its gone now and search
shows no such folder. What happened ?

Re: Cookies folder

Hello George,

The standard default location for cookies is at
C:\Documents and Settings\<User-Login>\Cookies

where <User-Login> is /your/ login user-account-name

Use My Computer (a.k.a., Windows Explorer) to look at folder(s)

Re: Cookies folder

George - Cookies folder is a hidden/Proteced OS folder - in View - Folder
Options both "show hidden files and folders" must be CHECKED and "Hide
protected OS files..." UNCHECKED.

AJR, I realize I'm visiting (finding) this thread a couple of months later, but I just had to say Thank You! This very question was driving me absolutely crazy for months. I knew about showing hidden folders, but had never paid attention to the other option. I'm SO happy to have my Cookies folder back. Thank you so much and thank you George for asking the question! :)
