No problem then. You could add the folder that they are in on the other drive to your Documents library. This way they stay on the other drive, but you can still access them all in your Documents library.

Library - Include a Folder

In addition, you can also set the default save location of your Documents library to be the folder on the other drive.

Library - Set Save Folder

Well grub time is over,
I hope that you don't be offended regarding the last info regarding documents etc.
Been thinking I have a clean C drive now and decided to get rid of a lot of software that I never used it was just sitting there doing nothing.
Coming back to the documents etc,I have made a thought of creating shortcuts on my desktop for the Doc's,Pic's,music'Video.I have them on the desktop and working okay,But the shortcuts have a blue arrow on then I did try and change the icon but failed.Also is it a simple method of maybe getting those folders on the task bar.
Thanks.Maybe after this I will leave you in peace.

It's no bother.

Did the library idea not work for your needs?

The tutorial below can help show you how to change the icons for shortcuts.

Shortcut - Change Icon

If you want to have these folder shortcuts on the taskbar, then you could use an option in the tutorial below to do so.

Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder

Very sorry to get back to you once again,Its about windows old.I looked at the new install on my C drive and there was windows old I right clicked on this and it showed up as 23GB.And the new windows is 31.7GB now is it safe for me to delete that windows old I don't want to make a mess of things now that is running okay.
Looked into disc management it didn't show any partitions.
I'll wait for you to give go ahead before I attempt to delete it.
Thanks.David

Can you post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Once you're sure you have everything you need from the old install, then you can delete windows.old using Disk Cleanup. Disk Cleanup - Open and Use
