Changing the Favorites Folder Properties

To change the location of the Favorites folder by changing its properties, open Windows Explorer and navigate to the current location of the Favorites folder (most likely the default, C:\Users\[username]\Favorites). Right-click on the Favorites folder in the right pane and select Properties from the popup menu.

Click the Location tab, and type your new favorites location.
