How to Remap Default Folder Locations (SSD + HDD)

Your SSD contains your OS, Programs and Games. (Certainly not your internet Cache, right?) But you don’t want to store your media (music, videos, photos, downloads, etc) on the SSD, this is how you reassign the default locations of things.

On your HDD, let’s call it “D:\” Make the following folders:

Desktop
Downloads
Documents
Music
Photos
Videos

Then go into your explorer and go into your default folders (usually your full name)

It should look like this:

defaulticons

RIGHT click each of the folders, and go to PROPERTIES, and on the LOCATION tab, you will see this:

desktop

Change the default location for each folder to the new folder you created on “D”. For example this is for desktop (D:\Desktop) in the image above.

It will ask you if you want to MOVE all the files in there, say yes.

Now you are remapped proper.

While you are setting up your new computer, you might as well continue and setup your Windows 10 Install proper here.
