    Can I change the location of user folders in Windows 7?

    While I was using Windows Vista with my PC, it was possible to right click on the desktop icon and select ‘target’ to relocate the folder. But after upgrading my system to Windows 7, I am not able to make changes in the location of user folders according to my need. What steps should I take to use this feature with Windows 7?

    Get into any window and type C:\Users\ (user name) into the address bar. You need to enter the name of current user as username. Press the ‘Enter’ key after that and locate the user folder whose location you want to change. Once you find that folder, right click on it and select ‘Properties’ from the pop-up menu. Click on the ‘Location’ tab available on the dialog box. You can find the option for changing the location under “you can change where files in this folder are stored to another place on this hard drive, another driver or another computer on the network” label. After making necessary changes, click the ‘Apply’ and ‘OK’ buttons one after the other.

    hi friend,
    1. Click Start, and then point to My Documents.
    2. Right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
    3. Click the Target tab.
    4. In the Target box, do one of the following:
      • Type the path to the folder location that you want, and then click OK. For example, D:\My Stuff.

        If the folder does not exist, the Create Message dialog box is displayed. Click Yes to create the folder, and then clickOK.
      • thank you.
