LordFett Posted November 19, 2009 Share Posted November 19, 2009 I keep all my documents and personal files on a hard drive seperate from my windows and programs. This way if I have to do a restore or reformat all of my files are in a different location. In XP "My documents" was easily changed with a right click and then on the location tab you remapped it. You can do this with the libraries in Win7 but most programs still default save/open to c:\users\user_profle\My Documents or c:\users\user_profle\Downloads.Right clicking these folders do not give the location tab or any other way to remap them. I found a work-around but wonder if there is an easier way, or possibly a registry setting. You can get the location tab on properties through an Open or Save as browse window. Just open Word or Notepad and hit CTRL+O and then right click the folder you want to remap and do so just as you would've done in XP. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
