Hello - I did a few searches regarding this topic and came up with nothing :C

I'd like to know how to go about moving and renaming program directories properly, so that all shortcuts, registry entries and so on are all updated.

An example of what I would like to do is rename my Adobe directory (simply named "Adobe" [which houses folders for Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, so on and so forth]) into "Adobe Creative Suite."

As for moving directories, I'd like to find out how to take folders dumped into "My Documents" by programs (like most computer games) and redirect them to the program's directory. An example of which is taking the "My Games\Oblivion" folder and taking it from My Documents and dropping it into the game's directory.

Any help is appreciated.

Renaming or moving directories that are already created and being used is a bad idea. It would create too many complications.

Your best option would be to uninstall your current program, then do a "custom" reinstall, whereas you'd tell the computer where to install it and modify the folder name.


As for moving "special folders", you should download Tweak UI:

download > install > open > exand My Computer > Special Folders > I see things like My Pictures and My Music listed there, but I don't see My Games.
