    win8.1preview - computer customization


    i love how most user file folders have been put into "my computer". it makes it much easier for me to drag and drop files around different folders. however i never use "desktop", is there a way to replace that with the "saved games" folder?

    I am not clear on what you are trying to do; however, if you are trying to create a saved games folder (shortcut) on your Metro screen, you can simply find it in explorer, right-click, and pin to start menu. And, if you don't like the desktop, you can simply unpin it from the Metro screen. Good luck.

    Naw. What I'm trying to do is take out the Desktop folder and replace it with the Games folder in the My Computer/This PC window:

    Unfortunately, I was not able to ascertain that from your original post; however, I do believe you are going to have mucho trouble in trying to do that so I would proceed with great caution. However, I've been wrong before so maybe a guru will come along and give you the exact fix you need. Good luck.
