Moved Photo Folder

Posted on 2012-09-12
Last Modified: 2012-09-14
A while back, to save space an a small HD, I changed the destination of the Vista start menu Photo Folder from the small HD to an external HD.
Since then, I have installed a very large HD and would like to return Vista to its orginal Photo Folder destination on the new HD.
I forgot how I made the first change and  have no idea how to reverse that change.
Thank you,

    In Windows Explorer > click Libraries > Right click Pictures > select Properties

    You can now add your original pictures folder back and remove the external one.

    Sorry there isn't either.  So used to Win7 now. :)

    It can be done with a registry edit.

    See the instructions in the link below.
