Moving user folders

Hi guys

How do i go about this please its driving me insane

Move folders to the desired location (D), then create a shortcut to each of them in your users folder.

As pbcopter has said just create a shortcut:

Right click >> New >> Shortcut >>
Type a name for the shortcut and location to the d:\ drive (e.g. D:\My Music\)

Hope This Helps.
