Move Your ‘My Documents’ Folder

The ‘My Documents’ folder on your P.C. is usually located on your ‘C’ drive by default when you install Microsoft Windows, but it makes sense to move it, especially if you have a second hard drive, or a partitioned drive.

Microsoft Windows actually mates the task of moving the folder very easy indeed!

  • Right click on the My Documents icon and select Properties.
  • Now select the Target tab and then click the Move button.
  • Browse to a Suitable location from the file Selector box, and then click on ‘OK’ a couple of times.

Microsoft Windows will now move the contents of your current ‘My Documents’ folder to the new location, the space that has been made available by moving this folder can now be used for programs or other data.
