For SharePoint developers, we will visit the "12" hive almost on a daily basis - to deploy features, check log files, deploy custom site definitions, etc. One old trick is to create an environment variable that short-cuts our way to the "12" hive (alternately, most of us would have a shortcut already created on the desktop or the explorer's quick launch).
From "My Computer", right-click and select "Properties" (or, "Win+Break" - another short-cut). From the "Advanced" tab, select "Environment Variables". Click on "New", and enter a new environment variable: Name: MOSSValue: %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12 fooshen's : SharePoint Development - Quick Tips #1
