Changing location of Documents Libraries

Recommended Posts

RedwookHighway

Is there an easy way to bring up Documents Properties in windows 10. I have been looking for a bit and I'm just not seeing much. Autoit Windows info doesn't seem to bring up a ControlID for anything within File Explorer. I am trying to make a script that will automatically change the locating of libraries in windows.

why not just use the registry?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

refference: Change Windows special folders location programatically

Thanks, genius257, I'll look into that. I will need to make sure that the files actually get moved to the new location. I think I'll write something to move everything over first then change the registry and finally restart the system to set the changes.
