    "My Documents" folder

    Hey,

    Does anyone know how to change the "My Documents" folder created by Windows from defaulting to my c:\ to be on my d:\ instead?

    I've just installed a new hard drive and wish programs to default to d:\My Documents instead of c:\My Documents when saving stuff?

    Windows is installed on the c:\ if this makes any difference.

    Cheers,

    Joel

    hello,

    you can do that by accessing the windows registry. change the following string to the location you want:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Personal

    hope this helps,

    Also, TweakUI works pretty well for changing your My Documents folder.
