How to move "my documents" etc

By lcplwilson ·
In XP Pro you can move "my documents" to another drive thus separating your stuff from your system drive. How do you do the same in Window 7 Home Premium.

Win 7 My Docs

by L-Mo In reply to How to move "my documents ...

You can right click "documents" in the start menu, select properties. In this window you can add folders to your library. Add the folder you want to use. From there you will want to select the folder and select "set save location"

Also, here's a link I found that also shows you how to move the folder, as opposed to just changing the default save location.


btw, In my case I added folders from a network, and thus had to make them available offline. Let us know if you're not sure how to do that.

Good Luck.

How do you do it in XP

by Slayer_ In reply to How to move "my documents ...

Only way I know of is, right click My Computer, Choose Manage. Expand users and select your user, choose properties, and go to the profile tab, type a file path in the profile location box.

I assume Windows 7 is done the same way.

Not a Domain OS

by Twors88 In reply to How to move "my documents ...

Remember, windows 7 home premium is not a Domain operating system. While the my docs can be remapped locally, it more than likely cannot be remapped to a network location or synchronized like on a domain
