There are a bunch of windows shell folders, my documents is the best known, but also my music, my photos, and many others.

You can learn how to change their locations here.

Some tricks may work, right click and drag it in windows explorer, select 'move here' will sometimes work.

Read the article though to learn the ins and outs.
