    New laptop, Dell 7000, Windows 10

    Microsoft decided to create a home directory for me as c:\users\chars

    I would like for default home to be c:\users\charsmith

    How could I do that?

    Thanks.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Changing the default directories on Omnia

    Is it possible to change the default directories on the Omnia.

    Ideally I want to change the default my documents and sub folders to my storage/my documents/ and same for the default program installation path instead of programs I would like it to be my storage/programs/

    Also I know there is a registry hack to change the ringtone default directory, is there one to change the default SMS / Alarms tone directory?

    Thanks for any help.
