no all users on Windows 7: what replaced documents and setting, all users?

hello,

I am a network technician trying to learn about windows 7 and I would like to know what replaced documents and setting, all users, desktops on windows xp in windows 7? I see a tutorial about public folders for windows 7 but how do I get a folder or website on any "new" users desktop that uses windows 7? I was able to do this fine in windows xp now I can't in windows 7?? Hope that is clear enough??

Thanks for any help in this matter, I do appreciate it.

Thank you.

I have now found it in public/public desktop.

It is -obviously- a hidden folder, which I had not realized!

WinXP's user profile folder structure was completely revamped with the
release of Windows Vista, and those changes have been carried forward to
Windows 7:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\ is now C:\Users\
 
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ is now C:\Users\Public\
 
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop is now
C:\Users\Public\Public Desktop
 
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Favorites is now
C:\Users\Public\Favorites
 
If you need to affect all user's start up files or Start Menu, though:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\ is now
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\
