Ten years ago, you didn't see that default folder structure in Windows. None of this "My" stuff.

The world remained on its axis.

I can only guess that MS developers felt that you needed your hand held and could not be trusted with your own judgment.

It's always seemed cuckoo to me. Any user can make any folder structure they want, so why the nudging to "My"...............................?

You can move that Music Folder, or any User Folders for that matter, to another drive and place all your Media in it as well.

Or, move all your Media to the folders default location.

In the end, its all personal preference how you want to do it.

So long as you added whatever location to the library, you will have easy access to it through them.
WMP & Photo Viewer will also import everything in your library to its own library as well, regardless of its physical location.
