    I will recommend you to attempt the following steps.
    1. You need to make a new folder as well as assign suitable folder permissions if required.
    2. Now go to Start menu and Right click on My Documents and select properties in the context menu.
    3. After that click on the Target tab or else Location tab.
    4. Inside the target box type the path to the folder place which you desire My Documents to be, as well as after that click OK button.

    I have done the similar changes as mentioned in the above post, I have made my D: drive into 'my documents'. Anyhow, you be supposed to still be able on the way to alter the position it just will not come into view as 'my documents' inside the shell: UsersFilesFolder folders record. Create a My docu folder in d: drive and shift the location to there, if that is what you desire.

    Otherwise, click on Move, after that choose a new folder which you desire to move My Documents to, as well as click OK on the way to choose the folder the same as new target. After that Click OK at Documents’ Properties. If you require making a new folder, click Make New Folder shortcut and after that click OK two times. The new target folder be able to be one more place on similar hard drive, an additional drive or else another PC on your network. You have the choice whether to permit Windows shift the files presently inside the unique My Documents folder or to your new target folder.
