Windows 7: Remove C: Drive (or C: Drive "My Documents" from Libraries?

Remove C: Drive (or C: Drive "My Documents" from Libraries?

I have four hdd's on my computer and do solemnly swear I will NEVER save a created document on my C: drive. It is my system drive and used only for that purpose. However, whenever I try to "Save" or "Save As" any document or file I've created, I continually have to work (stumble?) around the default "C: My Documents" folder. Obviously I am going to save that document in its appropriate folder on another hard drive (PDF's in "PDF Files," Word documents in the "Word documents" folder etc...). I know how, and have included, the other hard drives in the libraries folder but have to always scroll past and down to get past the above default "C: My Documents" folder. (Yes, I have even changed the location (target) of the default "C: My Documents" folder, but do I really have to continually scroll around a folder I NEVER use?) It is just not practical to nest all of my other folders under the newly targeted "My Documents" folder as it would still involve more seemingly unneccessary searches and scrolling. Can't I just eliminate the C: drive completely from the libraries and just scroll directly to my (Insert hdd letter here)/PDF Files?

Hello Seafarer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you can remove any included folder you like. Including any on C:.
Library - Remove a Included Folder
Just be sure to set your default save folder for the library to an included folder you want. This way you could just select to save to your Document library, and have it saved to the folder.
Library - Set Save Folder
Hope this helps,
