The following steps allow you to redirect the “My Documents” folder to anywhere you wish:

1.     Click on the Start button
2.     Right click on Documents
3.     Select Properties
4.     This will bring up a similar window. USERNAME will be replaced by your actual user login name
5.     Click on Include a folder…
6.     This will bring up a similar window
7.     Browse to the location where you want to change the location
8.     Click on Include folder. This will bring up a similar window to the one below
9.     Highlight the folders you don’t want and click on the Remove button
10.     Then you should only see the new location you want for your My Documents folder

When you open “My Documents” or save to “My Documents” it will automatically be the location specified.
