As anyone who is reading this post know that on the start menu there is an icon 'My Music' that when it is clicked it will link you to the My Music folder. (To its location : My document/My music)

I want to change the location of My Music icon on the start menu.

What I am saying exactly is, I have the hard drive split in 2, one of them for the windows and the other for the files( like music,pictures,softwares.....). I want that when i click on My Music icon on the start menu, it will link me to the folder on the other partition (not that location in my documents).

Could that happen?

Thanks for taking your time reading my post.

Hi :thumbsup:...yes, it can happen, I believe.

You can try this: Right-click the shell folder (My Music) in Windows Explorer, drag the folder to the new location, release the mouse button, and select the Move Here item.

Note: If Windows Explorer complains, then you must use the registry to move the folder location and manually move the contents.

Or...you can do like I do and just ignore the My Music folder (I don't store any files in it) and I just create folders for music files wherever I want them. From there, if I wanted a shortcut, I would just right-click and send one to the desktop.

And there are other ways of doing what you seem to want...the above seems to be the easiest attempt that I could find.

OK, Done that with the Windows Explorer, no complains and I dont like icons on the desktop, if you see my desktop you will only see the recycle bin :D, if there is any way that I could remove the recycle bin and put it in the start menu, it will be much better.

Thanks for helping

At least...the first 3 links seem to have it covered.

Thanks, sorted that out too.

Now my desktop is clean as I wanted it to be.

LOL...clean desktops bother me...it only happens right after I've done a clean install.

I've always thought that the only purpose of the desktop...is to conveniently put shortcuts for programs and other files...within easy access of the user...but I've been wrong before and will be again.

Happy computing :thumbsup:.
