How -I- would do is this:

1.Go to Windows Explorer and create a folder, calling it
whatever you want, where you want it to be so everyone can
find it, and use it.

EX: C:\All Documents

2. Then in Windows Explorer you can RIGHT CLICK on the "My
Documents" (it's generally on the right side toward the
bottom) folder and select PROPERTIES.

When the properties comes up then select FIND TARGET and,
of course, direct it to the new folder.

Now you have THAT set up for YOU.

You need to do this for all users of your computer.

Then everyone will use C:\All Documents and programs that
open and save automatically to the "My Documents" folder will
open and save to C:\All Documents.

Hope this helps you.
