Q.  How Do I Change The Default Location Of My Documents Folder?

A.  By default the My Documents folder is situated on your C: drive. If you use a separate partition to store all of your data it may be advantageous to move the My Documents folder to another location. A further advantage to this move is that, should you have to reinstall Windows XP, your My Documents folder, being stored on a separate partitions will not loose it's important files. So long as you have an alternative partition or hard drive then you should proceed as follows to relocate the My Documents folder.

1. Click the Start button

2. On the Start Menu Right Click on the My Documents option

3. From the drop down menu select Properties

4. The first page of the My Documents properties window shows the Target Tab

5. On this page you will see a dialog box market 'Target Folder Location'

6. Type the path you want your My Document folder to be stored at in the dialog box, i.e., D:\Data\My Documents.

7. Next press the Move button

8. The Select a Destination window appears

9. Select the destination of the file

10. If a folder does not already exist then press the Make New Folder button to create the folders and give it a name

11. Finally click Ok

12. You will be asked if you want to transfer all documents from the My Documents folder to the new location. Press Yes to start the moving process. If you don't want the documents moved to the new location press the No button
