desktop target

Hi all,

I might just be having a slow day so be gentle.

I have just reinstalled win 7 64bit on laptop and always one thing I do it move the desktop folder target to another partition so as to save c partition fragmenting and taking up space but I cant do it now.

Am I going mad? How can I do it with win 7? I used to download tweakui but does not work any more and I cant remember how to do it. Please help my feeble brain!

Thanks in advance

Shortcut target question
If I remember correctly it's possible to make a shortcut to a file work on any computer, or in any location on my computer, by changing something in the shortcut target field, so it doesn't specifically target the whole address. Only I don't remember how it works... I want it to work like this:...
