How to change dfault location of --MY DOCUMENTS
Have just installed win 7 Prof upgrade. I have read the---how to change the default location of user folders in win 7 and win8. The problem with this and other ways always come down to a tab called --LOCATION--. I have only five tabs in properties on my documents folder (that I want to move MY DOCUMENTS to another disk). The 5 taps are GENERAL,SHARING,SECURITY,PREVIOUS VERSIONS,CUSTOMIZE. I followed the instructions in above tutorial---
5. Press the Windows+R keys to open the Run dialog, type shell:UsersFilesFolder, and press enter.
NOTE: This will open your C:\Users\(user-name) folder.
6. Right click or press and hold on a user folder (ex: My Music, My Documents, My Pictures, etc.....) that you want to move the default location for, and click/tap on Properties. (See screenshot below)
From what I have read a few places I might be in the wrong place.So what am I doing wrong.

If you like, you might consider this below to be able to access the files from your libraries with the files actually located where you like instead. This way you will not have to worry about any potential issues that come with moving user folder locations.
