how to restore default location of ''my documents''?

hello,

Like the title says, I changed default location of my documents using: properties -> move...


Now the problem is I changed it to my Data partition E: instead of to a directory ''documents'' I made on the data partition. Now I can not click properties to change it back to default. There must be an easy other way to do it.


Thanks in advance
