Missing "location" tab from roaming app data folder

The first screen shot is from my desktop, which is running Vista Ultimate. The second screen is from my laptop, which is also running Vista Ultimate, but for some reason, the tab that will let me change to location of the roaming app data folder is gone. I'd like to redirect both app data folders to the same place, but I can't change the location on the laptop. If anyone can offer some help, I'd really appreciate it.

I think you may be able to move the location of the Appdata Roaming folder by going into the registry:

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

right click on the AppData entry in the right pane and select Modify, and then enter the new location.  The usual value for this entry is %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming
