Xp Account Rename Folder Question

Recommended Posts

I'm giving this laptop to my Mom now and I've renamed the account, but I'm wondering if it's possible to rename the root my documents folder, because it still has my name on it, and how i would go about doing that.

I rename the path to the other name and restart and it goes back to my name for the my documents folder. do i need to change all the values in that folder? why isn't this working?

Just rename the folder and change the registry value "Personal" contained in

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shellfolders.

Wrong, it's

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]

key.
