I'll take a stab at this. The "Documents" link on the left-hand pane in
Windows Explorer (My Computer) is actually a symbolic link to
C:\Users\<username>\Documents. So, when you "send" something to that link
(I'm assuming drag it over to that link) it goes to that location.
As for the "Can't change that to "F" portion of the question", I have a
couple of questions for you as well....
1. Is F a thumbdrive or another type of removable drive?
2. When you tried to get the Locations tab, how did you go about it?
(I'll post some steps below in case you didn't try it this way)
Steps for finding the location:
1. Click on the Globe in the taskbar ("Start" button from earlier versions
2. At the top on the right-hand side, it should say your username (or Owner
or User, if you have a Generic name there), click on this.
---> This should bring up the C:\Users\username folder
3. Highlight "Documents" and right click on it.
4. Click on Properties.
5. Click the Location tab at the top.
6. Change the location to the drive that you want. You should be able to
manually type in the drive letter.
7. Click Apply, then Ok
Repeat steps 3 through 7 for the other folders.
There's also a "Move" button which will allow you to move everything (or at
least some files/folders to any location you choose. I would actually do
this BEFORE you select the location for the "Pictures", "Music", and other
sub-folders in My Documents.
Hope this helps you a little:-)
