    It requires a little manipulation in the register.

    Click on "start", "Run ..." then type "regedit" and click on "OK"

    Go to the key: " HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Shell Folders "

    On the right change the value data following channels:
    • My Music :folder "My Music"
    • My Pictures:folder "My Pictures"
    • My Video: folder "My Videos"
