I think you have to set the path per program.
e.g. in Word, goto Tools>Options>File Locations
select Documents and click on Modify
choose your preferred folder and click ok
word will save this folder as the default folder for all your new documents.

The above works well for changinhg the behaviour of a single programme but if all your programms are trying to save files into the MyDocuments directory you could think of redirecting MyDocuments itself to another location.
