I just got a new computer and I'm in the process of configuring it to my liking. One thing I'd really like is to change the default Temp folder. On my other computer, the older one, I read an article somwhere describing how to change the temp folder from C:\Windows\Temp to whatever I want. I've since lost that bookmark to that article and I'm looking for someone who knows how to change it.

Thanks in advance

Nevermind this post guys, lock/delete it or whatever.

After some researching (google searches) I found that it could be done through the environment variables, and found a good walkthrough for doing it.

The Uprise of a new Technology is the contributing factor to the failure of many human brains.
In short ==== We are too reliant on Technology.
