Hi,
I'm using 64 bit Windows 7 Pro O/S.


I recently installed a SSD which now contains only my O/S as C/:(Local Disk). I'm in the process of moving my backed up files and programs onto an internal storage Hdd which I've labeled D/:.

As the Hdd now contains all my documents, music, and picture files I would like to change the folder paths of the Start Menu buttons. I was able to do this with the "Downloads" button by changing the path after right clicking on "Downloads" and going to "Properties/Location". But I can't do it for the "Music" button or the "Pictures" button. (I'm talking about the buttons on the right side of the Start Menu). If I right click "Music" then go to Properties there is no "Location" button to be found. The buttons are useless as they are because they only link to my C:/ drive library folders which are all empty. Is there a way to get them to link to my D:/ drive folders?

Thanks,
redx.

Hi SleepyDude,

Thanks for the good advice, that did the trick. It seems I was attacking the problem from the wrong end, but all is good now.

Problem solved

Cheers,
