Default Cookie location

Hi Imar,

Windows 8. Using IE10 > Internet Options > General tab > Browsing History Settings > View Files.

The path to the directory is also displayed on the General tab, but that directory can't be seen in Windows Explorer unless, in folder options, we uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)"; but it's there. For me unchecking that box creates a lot of screen clutter I don't really need.

When I sorted the files by date, I quickly found the cookie created by the WROX website we're working on. Mine is named "Cookie:alan@localhost/" and it contained:
PreferredTheme
Monochrome
localhost/
1024
766503552
30367738
2790271197
30349641
*

I just presumed there is a way in ASP.NET to set the name of the cookie which would be pretty valuable. I always find it frustrating to not be able to locate a cookie by name when its not named in association with the website that generated it. I wanted to set the cookie name to "wrox...<something>". But I might lack some key understanding of how that name is being set.

Thanks.

Best Regards,
Alan
