2. Pictures, Music are no longer sub-folders inside of
3. Being special system folders, it is important that Vista know where they are. Just go to your profile folder: c:\Users\MyUserName
Then right click on Documents (or whatever folder you want to move) and go to the
Properties. On the Location tab, just hit the
Move button and select where you want it moved to. When you hit Ok you will get some prompts and things will be moved for you. And Vista will make sure everything gets redirected there.
This is the only "Supported" way to move these folders without using Group Policy.
BTW at least for My Documents, this works XP too.
Haven't got Vista here but its likely they will be stored in the same registry location as in XP...
roughness aside - and if done properly by ms (not TGsoft/winblinds) would that not have been the must have vista upgrade feature everyone seems to be looking for?
i think it would - and before you flame the idea - it does adress old / new users - fast / slow machines and FUD surrounding "open" standards (ie- there would finally be an ms sanctioned tool to control any piece of functionality/interaction they add to windows)
I had the same problem, google it and found this. Cutting and pasting the document folder to somehwere lese works. but there is another way!. Start> Right click on Documents> Properties> Location Tab and il leave you to figure out the rest. the same
goes for pictures and music aswel incase your like me with pictures and music.
