changing library destinations?

I use libraries but not as much. However, i use My Documents, My Music etc a lot more. Is there any way to change the destination of the libraries in the start menu.



for example, if i click on Documents, it would take me to the document library, i want to take me to my actual My Documents folder.

Hello BTNH,

This can help show you how to have the Start Menu My Documents, Pictures, Music, and Videos buttons open to the real C:\Users\(user-name) location instead of the default Libraries location.

Start Menu User Folder Buttons - Open to Users Instead of Libraries

Hope this helps,
Shawn
