Windows 7: Change location of "My Documents" folder

Some people (ie. MedinaSoft) likes to have personal folders, such as "My Documents", on different drives instead of the default "C:\Users\Username\Documents".

  • Open up your current "My Documents" folder in Windows Explorer
  • Right click the folder
  • Properties
  • Select the "Locations" tab
  • Click "Move"
  • (Create) and select the folder you want as the new location for "My Documents"
  • Click "Apply"
  • Click "Yes"
  • Pop bottles and models.

Also, remember to update your "Documents" library once you've relocated the folder.
