Moving My Documents

My Documents propertiesGeorge Skarbek’s column in The Age today features a question from someone pondering moving My Documents. George replies that it involves a bunch of registry fiddling, and that it’s so complicated you can’t do it.

Ummm actually, just right-click on it, go to Properties, and you’ll see a Move button. Click, choose the directory, and it does it. Easy.

Note that it doesn’t shift the other user settings (which are in the parent directory of My Documents).
