View Full Version : Renaming Documents and Settings folder

I'm running Win 2000 and was wondering what I need to tweak to be able to re-name my 'personal' folder ('Andrew Klinkhamer') in the 'Documents and Settings' directory. If you attempt to re-name it Windows informs you it is a system folder and cannot be moved or re-named. However, if you perform a clean install of the OS this means you have to pick a different name (Windows will append something to your name if you don't) and, er, pedantic as it seems I like using that one....

Tweak UI lets you set the location for the folder. Much easier than manaully doing it using the registry.

Thanks for this, however TweakUI only allows you to move the 'My Documents' folder rather than re-naming the directory 'My Documents' is contained in.
