Stop the platform from creating Documents folder

Is it possible to stop the platform from creating the Documents, Music, Pictures and Videos folders? If it's not currently possible, can you please implement it? It's really annoying and unnecessary!

Other Structure?

Are you using an alternate directory structure? The ability to work with that is a planned future feature.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I use the platform on my non-primary drive, and I don't want unnecessary Documents folders (like Documents, Music, etc) on that Drive. I generally don't want to let the platform to access or manage my Documents folder. PortableApps is about apps not connected to the user's account, I'm confused why this is not already an option.

Hi Donald,

I also have asked for a similar feature. To be able to control the folder structure/tree.
I've mock up the option tab, see what you think of my mock up. maybe some feedback may help them with a direction to aim for.

On my option mock up you can delete the folders, add new folders with new paths, change the icons and change the order.
I know these guys are very busy (and do a great job), I do hope they can get time to add this feature soon, It has been asked for for a very long time. I might start a new thread where people can give ideas for the exact features they want?!?!

I would be fine with an option to disable creating the "My Documents folder structure".
