    Default change default folders - documents - music - video - downloads

    I am not sure of the right sub-group to ask this question.

    How do I change the default folders - documents - music - video - downloads normally set to the home drive?

    I would like to point them to a different data directory

    thanks for the help

    Give them another name, or e.g. when you have their contents on another place and want to preserve the name, make them symbolic links.

    BTW I assume you mean, as end-user, in your home directory and not "your home drive".
