Changing Desktop and My Documents location

February 14, 2012

I know this is a simple thing to do but I recently ran into a problem when I couldn’t get to the Location tab under properties of Desktop or My Documents. Weird I know but this is about I fixed it and in the interim found a nicer way to change all those locations;

Start>Run>shell:UsersFilesFolder

That will bring you a window that has all the links – you may find some that are duplicated but those are the non-standard links and you can safely delete them without worry if you want to revert back to the standard location.

I couldn’t find the shell command for this for ages which is why I’m adding it here!
