Is there a way to set a different target for the My Documents folder via a
batch file?

Use the REG.EXE utility that comes with Windows XP. Type REG /? in Command
Prompt.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
Shell Folders]
Change the Value data for "Personal"

Thanks, but this doesn't seem to take effect until after a reboot. Is there
any way to force a change without rebooting?

Jon.
