Hi there! I would like to know how to change Document location in win7, as it was in win xp? I just want to locate them to another partition.
Thanx! :)

The process is really very similar to the ways you've probably done it in the past just open C:\Users\YourUserName right click your documents folder and choose properties....see attachment.

I`m using the libraries

For security reasons I have the "My docs", "Music", "Downloads" and etc. folders in another partition just as you said before. In this case you can change the location as in the answer above, or Configure the Windows 7 libraries and use them.
The libraries are easy way to create something like shortcut to more than one location and select one folder as default where new files (when copying, moving or creating) will be saved by default.
For more info about the libraries click here.
