Odd - I have set up folderviews on three boxes, all quite diferent in hardware and software, and every one points to the directories I have set - including the networked folders. > Even with "refresh view" it remains as home.

I clicked on the spanner/wrench and changed Show a Place to 'Downloads'. I got 2 seconds of busy signal, then my Downloads directory was visible. I then tried another, setting Specify a Folder to Downloads. Again it displayed correctly. Then, I went to the Display tab and changed the label to /home/Download. Again, all was well. Finally I tried another, using Specify a Folder, and changing the Display label before exiting - i.e. doing it all as one step. That too displays correctly. What exactly did you do that was different from these tests? Anne -- New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
