  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders.
  3. Double-click Personal (for My Documents) and change the value.
  4. Double-click My Pictures and change the value.

  6. Log off and restart the machine for the change to take effect.

You can also redirect these folders using a Group Policy Object (GPO)--look under User Configuration, Windows Settings, Folder Redirection. Right-click a folder, and select its redirection.

Another method to move the My Documents is as follows:

  1. On the Desktop right click the The My Documents Folder Icon
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click Move, and select your new location

Everything is moved automatically, including the My Picture Reference.
