I recently "upgraded" to win7 and now cannot find the folder where all the cookies are stored. I have used the normaly very helpful search option but all I get is where to change setting etc. not the actual folder where they are all listed.
Thanks
Chris

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies

The Enigmatic Cookies Folder In Windows Vista, & Windows 7.

Note, that you will have to change the settings of Windows Explorer to show all kinds of files (including the protected system files) in order to access these folders
go to file explorer - organize>Folder Options>View tab> click ON "Don't show hidden files... and click OFF "hide protected operating system files

RE: cookies folder

Open Explorer > Organize > Folder Options > Views > Check 'Do not show hidden files and folders' and Uncheck 'Hide protected OS files' > Apply > OK.


See if any help here.

If you are looking to clean up why not install Ccleaner? Install, run, click Options, click Cookies to see the list or just run the cleaner to remove them.

Cookies you need saved, like this site perhaps you move to the right column before doing the clean.

RE: cookies folder

I have Cookie Wall installed here on Win7 64bit and when I Right click on it and choose Add/Delete, it shows all my cookies and gives the choice of what you want to save or delete. LOVE that program.
The difference with Win7 compared to WinXP is with XP, I had it pop up each time a cookie wanted to install and I stopped it right then from.
