I usually assign a separate drive as "my documents" to keep them off drive C. How do I do this in Seven with a not empty folder as destination?

?
Go to Start(window flag thingy) > Documents. Then click on Libraries on the left. THen right click Documents, and go to Properties. From there you can add a new folder , remove the defaults, etc.

Personally I love WIndows Media Center and al the plugins you can get for it.

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear and implied you don't know how to set your Boot Order in BIOS.

That isn't what I was referring to by the "one time" Boot Menu, which is another key given on first bootup screen to shortcut to another HD besides the one you have set first to boot in BIOS.

Some do not know that this shortcut is available so they go into BIOS setup to change their other HD to boot first, which is a lot of unnecessary trouble and makes dual booting via BIOS inconvenient.

I know you said "case closed" on this but there may be others who want to learn and this is how it's done.

That's totally fine. I myself tend to lurk first to find an answer before posting and I'm always glad to find something other than "I figured it out, but I won't share"

Thanks. But I'm not sure I get that Libraries thing. I never used those folders, I always hated that they threw all that useless clutter into my folder structure and you can't even get rid of them. And to think, they are supposed to go to C!!!

And I'm not sure this is what I meant, either...
Ah, I figured it out. It's the same as in XP (I didn't dare hope), just change the folder location in the properties to the other drive, easy as pie.

This is starting to take on form and it's not as scary as I thought it would be. Thanks again for helping me out, guys.

This is the easiest way to change the drive of a User file:
