Moving My Documents

Question asked on July 27, 2005 5:54 PM :: :: Comments (0) :: TrackBacks (1)

There are several ways to move the My Documents folder within Windows. Perhaps the simplest method is to do a right-click on the folder, select Properties, and click the Move button. Select a new destination, click Ok and the My Documents folder is moved.

The important thing to remember is to already have another folder named "My Documents" in the new destination. In other words, if you want to move to the D: drive be sure to select "D:\My Documents" and not "D:\"

Windows has numerous other User folders and Shell folders that can also be redirected to other locations. However, moving these requires making changes to the registry, not something to be taken lightly, since one small mishap can render Windows unbootable.

Microsoft MVP Kent W. England has a Web page where he lists the numerous special folders inside Windows and how to move them.
