My 2nd question is how do i make the default documents folder something other than "My Documents" folder?
You can move your My Documents folder to anywhere you want to.
, right-click My Documents
, and select Properties
Click the Target
tab, if it's not already selected.
Click the Move
button, click where you want to move My Documents
to, to highlight it, then click OK
This will start the move, and leave "pointers" behind, so the Operating System will know where the files are.
After the move, when you click Start / My Documents, it will open the file from the location, where you moved it to.You might want to consider making a folder, to move My Documents into.
One with your username on it.
If you just move it to a partition/drive, My Documents will occupy the whole partition/drive.
By creating it's own folder, My Documents
will only occupy, that folder.
The folder with your name on it will be considered the My Documents
folder, for you.
When you click My Documents
, that's the folder that will open.
Say you're moving My Documents
from C:, to G:
In G:, create a folder with your name.
If you have other user's on the computer, you can do the same thing.
Just go to their accounts, and move them the same way.
