How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) folder via...


quite a bit of "what if's there" lol

First of all, yes you CAN re-direct the 'my documents' folder to another location....be it on an internal or external drive volume. This requires careful adjustments to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folder

when you do this, you can assign any path to the "my documents" folder, (and also the others listed,) this will be a permanent change and will cause that path to be the new destination for files saved to 'my documents' by the OS. the actual path does not HAVE to even have the word 'documents' in it...you could call it E:\bubbles if you want.

You would continue to 'save' your new docs to 'my documents', the OS would just be interpreting a new and different destination for the Save.

Should that resource become unavailable, you would have to perform a 'save-as' and then specify a valid save location.

If you are doing this because of limited space on your C-drive, well and good, but if not, then consider Drive synchronization software instead.
These software programs allow you to specify single, or multiple folders, to copy files. you would set it up to copy from your pc to the same-named folder(s) on the external drive, and to propagate changes....so it will save files that are new or changed and delete files that were deleted, (this can be suppressed.)

One of the pitfalls of using USB devices is that drive letters are typically assigned automatically. If you do not manually assign a drive letter that is not typically accessed by the fist say....4 USB drives, it is possible for the PC to become confused and start putting files to the wrong USB device. So assign your external a high drive letter like P for portable, and don't forget to include that in the new 'path' you put in the registry.

I hope that answered your questions.

Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.

How do I save an e-mail to my documents? I'm a dummy. I used to save as: but it's telling me that I have no such document. I have done this a hundred times before--I'm stumped!


If you use Outlook, go to the top of the e-mail, click on File, Save As, choose a folder in My Documents (or make a new one), type the name you want on the file, save as Outlook Message Format, then save.

Not sure if you help with software problems but its worth a try. I recently updated from office 1997 to office 2003 student/teacher edition. I need to do extensive edit to many old Word documents by...


If you are a Word 2003 user, but some of your colleagues are still using Word 2002 or even Word 97, you can share your documents with them as long as you save them in the standard Word document format. By having Word 2003 save your documents in this format, you can disable features not supported by the earlier versions and allow users to open your documents on their PCs.
If you don't want to do this every time you save a document, you can have Word automatically save your new documents in the correct format. Follow these steps:
  1. Go to Tools | Options.
  2. Click the Save tab.
  3. Under Default Format, click the drop-down arrow in the Save Word Files As box and select Word 97-2003 Document(*.doc).
  4. Click OK.
When you save your Word 2003 document, you will get a dialog box warning that some of the features that you used may not be available in the earlier versions. Click Yes to save it in the standard format that you'll share with the other users.

I have sent a word document created in vista, and have sent it to an XP user. They cannot open or view the document. How do I change the settings in Vista to resend the document?


You need to make sure that the file extension is correct, for example .doc because there are others that a .docx extension as well. One thing is that make sure whenever you are saving a word document try to save it as Word 97-2003 document, in that way it can open to any other Microsoft Word application without thinking what kind of operating system does the computer have.
