How to change the location of My Documents folder in XP

in Tips and Tricks, Windows XP

Low disk space… Clean up wizard… Notifications after every 5 minutes… Now, this is really getting on my nerves! Well, it’s like this that I store all my downloaded files (temporarily, not permanently!), all sorts of images, wallpapers, game saves, backup data etc. in My Documents. And now the folder size is around 9-10GB (excluding all the installed stuff, windows files and hundreds of folders).

I’m just too lazy to clean all that :P I guess, I’ll only learn when my HDD will crash and I’ll loose everything (I hope not!). Finally I’ve found how to move my entire My Documents to some other drive. It’s very very, very easy to do. If you already know that, just don’t make fun of me :/ .

Haven’t got your iPhone yet? Still waiting.. No problem. I have found a very nice tag for those who are still waiting to get their hands on the iPhone.

To save the tag (user bar), for IE users, right-click on the image and select Save Picture As. And as for the Firefox users, right-click on the image and select Save Image As.

Please do not link to this image directly. Save the image on your PC and upload it on your own server or where you want to upload it. Or if you don’t know where to upload, you can use any of the free image hosts mentioned here.

You just be living on Mars or must be an alien if you don’t know what place is Dubai :) . Never mind if you really don’t know. I’ll give you a brief introduction about it. Dubai is a very small city in United Arab Emirates. You probably wouldn’t even have ever noticed it while looking at a map. And it’s the place where I have spent 13 years of my life :) .

Now coming back to the topic, Burj Dubai is being constructed in “New Downtown” of Dubai and on Saturday, 21 July 2007, the developers reported it’s height as 512.1 metres with 141 completed floors surpassing the Taipei 101 (509.2 m) as the tallest high-rise building in the world.
