Default how do i change the path for music, pictures in start menu

Ok i am running vista. when i click the start menu, at the top right corner, there is my user name...and then a bunch of other options like documents, music, pictures, etc. How do i change their locations?

When i right click on "Music" and then click the properties tab, its blank. can i change this in the control panel?

- Right click on folder (Videos, Documents, etc)
- Go to properties
- Click on the "Location tab"
- Change the location to a folder somewhere else that's more convenient for you (ex D:\Music)

If I understand you correctly, you've moved the location of the music folder (to a folder location on your external drive) but now when going back to the music folder from start and right clicking the location tab is missing?

Doing the following you don't see the location tab?

Press Start > right click on MUSIC in the right pane of the start menu > Properties > Location

You might try this tool to reset your pathnames of various folders:

Go to start,go to run and type in 'regedit',Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

And you can change them through there.
