I have several folders in my user profile directory that I don't think belong there. For most of the unwanted folders, the folder name begins with a dot.
It seems like these belong in the AppData folder instead. Is something screwed up in my system, like a bad environment variable, or are apps actually creating these annoying directories at the root of my user directory on purpose?
I want to get rid of them. Is it safe or possible to just move these into the AppData directory myself. I'm guessing not, but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask. Maybe there is a tool that can do this. But, probably, if I want to move them, I'll have to go into each application and change the settings manually. Or worse, muck with the registry manually.
As an alternative, is it safe to just mark these folders as hidden? Can that mess anything up?
