LOL, ok Marko.

Tru dat Wolfgang. Sometimes, if your lucky, the program will create the folder automatically if it doesn't find it at the original C: location.

A simple solution would be to add the folders you created to the respective Library for each.

That is what I do now. I do not move the original use folders but create new folders for Documents, Music, etc. in a seperate data partition. Then I "Include" those into the respective libraries. One of the advantages is that I have a clear seperation of my own data and the folders created by the system/programs.

For laptops you can even use an external USB attached disk for this type of user folders. But it does not work with USB sticks.

embrace the library

Why fight it? Embrace the libraries! You can delete some of the generic libraries. For instance, I don't have many videos, so I right clicked that library and chose to delete it. However, there is a folder that I use quite often named Letters. It is on my D: drive. In the Windows Explorer, I navigate to that folder and right click on it. From the drop down menu, I choose: "Include in Library" and then "Create New Library".

Now, in Windows Explorer, in the Library section, I have a library called Letters. Think of it as a Jump List for folders. I have set up the folders I use often as "libraries". When I want to go there, I click the yellow folder icon on the task bar and then click the Letters library and in two clicks I am where I want to be! SLICK!

Exactly, that's the way to do it.
