Moving My Docs to D Drive

Found these instructions on net but I got lost at #7:

Quote:
The My Documents folder is part of Windows 7's new Documents Library. A library combines multiple folders that contain similar types of files.

To move your documents to the D drive:

1. Create a new documents folder on the D drive.
2. Right-click the new folder and click Include in Library > Documents .
3. Click Start > Documents .
4. Double-click My Documents to show its contents.
5. Drag and drop the files to the new folder.
6. Press F5 to refresh the view.
7. Under Documents Library , click locations .
8. Right-click the new folder and click Set as default save location .
9. [Optional] Click My Documents and click Remove .
move the My Documents folder to another drive - Microsoft Community
Where is Documents Library > locations?

Disaster @ #16 -

User Profile - Change Default Location

I have deleted the temp. admin. but now I'm the only one in the house again but I have the profile of the temp account desktop & all.

When I use another copy of windows to look into the troubled Windows 7 C drive I see in "users" both me & the temp admin as account users still. I'm guessing I must have still been in "Temp Admin & deleted himself". But that is only an after thought. i'm still sure i did it right.

NEVER mind about this drama. I have used an old image to recover most. I'll load up an extra drive later and practise first next time.

Just for future reference, "Documents Library > locations" can be accessed by clicking the Blue text under "Documents Library" heading.
