  3. Change default game save/settings location?

I've noticed that many games default their game saves and game settings into the "My documents" folder for the user logged into that computer. I was wondering if there is a way to change all that so games automatically go somewhere else, even if its into another folder within "My Documents"

I think you can use symbolic links. Just google "windows symbolic links" for more info, I haven't done it myself.

I don't think there is a way to by default have ALL games save in a particular place.

Only problem with this is that you would have to do it for every game or publisher/dev unless you move the entire my documents folder.

Although I would recommend steammover if you do go with symbolic links as it's the easiest method I've found (despite it's intended purpose)
