I was playing around in C:\Users\'name' I was changing the 4 main library's doc, music, pics and video's location from my SSD which has win7 to my HDD. All but my documents worked. This is because when I choose the location folder for my docs I set it as F:/ by mistake so now all new documents created by games and programs are saving straight into F:/ and creating a clutter. This would be easily fixed if I could right click My Documents folder however since the location is F:/ no folder exists to right click.

So my question is how do I change its location?
or create a new one.

Check these registry keys and see if they are set to f:

You should be able to modify it and put in f:\MY Documents

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Personal

HKU\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Personal
