Does this link that LMiller posted works for Windows 7?
As the location and name of the system folder Windows
is set not only in one but two different Windows environment variables(*)
and as the registry as well as configuration files of various applications and tools are full of referrals to these variables, it would not only be really astonishing foolish to change the name of the Windows folder, but also a sure way to disaster.
Please forget this whole idea and accept the fact that Windows folder's name is Windows.
= Both %WinDir%
refer to the Windows folder. You can check this easily by opening Windows Explorer and typing either %WinDir%
to the Explorer address bar and hitting Enter, which then opens the Windows folder.
