For what it is worth, all the kool kids will use


SystemOpen@FileNameJoin[{$UserBaseDirectory,"SystemFiles","FrontEnd","StyleSheets"}]

to open the directory containing the user style sheets. While I have
yet to take advantage of the full spectrum of style sheet
capabilities, smoothly switching from working mode to printing to
presentation, I have made some working mode style sheets that I like.
I used the style sheet included with David Park's excellent
Presentations package as a guide. I learned a lot from that example.
