You know how it says like C:Jacob>My Documents.

How do I change where it says Jacob? Changing my profile name in the Control Panel doesn't do it.

I'm using Windows XP for the record.

Been a while since I've used XP (haven't since the vista release candidate came out). But if memory serves me correctly, should be as simple as Right clicking the folders in question (My Docs, My Music, My Pics, My Videos), and opening their properties, that should allow you to change the system location of them, like say to another hard drive (had to do that with my music folder when I was running xp).

Well, first of all, "C:Jacob>My Documents" is not a valid path and doesn't make sense.

Second, renaming your user folder will probably horribly break things -- if Windows will even let you do it at all.
