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"
The console war is over, both consoles have gone casual, neither won the war. They both just kind of...gave up.

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)
