Changing the Documents Location in Windows 7

How to Change the Documents Folder in Windows 7 
(formerly "My Documents" in earlier versions)

Note: The Documents folder is referred to as the "Personal" folder in the Windows 7 registry.
  1. Open Regedit
  2. Navigate to:
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders"
  3. Locate the registry key "Personal". The "Data" value is the path to the current Personal folder.  
  4. Change the value of the key to the desired location, (I. E. "H:\My Documents")
