How to change your default pictures folder in Vista ?

| May 20, 2007 | 2 Comments

Keeping all your pictures organized in one central location is a very good practice, as it allows for easy backups and searches. Most users use the default Pictures folder (C:\Users\<your_user_name>\Pictures) to store their stuff, but this is certainly not a must, as the default pictures folder location can be easily changed.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Create a new folder that will be used to store your pictures (skip this step if you would like to use an existing folder).
  • Navigate to your default Pictures folder .
  • Open the Pictures folder and copy its content to the new Pictures directory you just created.
  • Right Click the Pictures folder and click Properties.
  • Navigate to the Shortcut tab.
  • In the Target filed, specify the location of your new pictures folder.

  • Click OK.
