    How to Move Your Music Folder Location in Windows 10


    By default, Windows stores your personal Music folder in your account's %UserProfile% folder (ex: "C:\Users\Brink").

    You can change where files in this Music folder are stored to another place on the hard drive, another drive, or another computer on the network.

    This tutorial will show you how to move the default location of your Music folder to where you want in Windows 10.

    It is highly recommended to create a system image backup first to make it easy to undo if you were to make a mistake in the steps below.



    Here's How:

    1. If you haven't already, you will need to create a new folder named Music at the location (ex: "E:" ) you want to move your personal Music folder to. (see screenshot below)

    2. Open This PC in File Explorer (Win+E), right click on your Music folder, and click/tap on Properties. (see screenshot below)

    If you don't see the Music folder in This PC, then you can also click/tap on the icon in the address bar of File Explorer, type shell:My Music into the address bar, and press Enter to open your Music folder no matter where it may be located.

    You can then right click or press and hold on an empty area in your Music folder, and click/tap on Properties.
