    Folder / Properties / Location


    I am trying to edit the folder's Location in Properties. The Location tab is there. It shows the folder's location path, but I am not able to edit it. The cursor will move around in the box, but it does not permit me to make any changes.

    :)

    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions

  4. Folder / Properties / Location

    Location-tab in Properties

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The information provided by you in the post, seems to be the Location tab is missing under
    Properties.



    Usually the Location tab will be present under
    Properties
    for the folders listed under Quick Access (Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures) and folders listed under
    This PC (3d Objects, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos).



    In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please provide us the screenshot of the windows where you are not able to get the
    Location tab under properties. (Please follow the steps mentioned in the

    screenshot
    posted by Shawn ‘Cmdr’ Keene on Oct 2, 2015 to post the screenshots.) Do not share any personal information in the screenshots.



    We await your response.
