    You may find this difficult, because in Windows 7 C:\My Documents does not exist!
    You probably mean C:\Users\<youraccount>\My Documents

    And where would you like this default to operate? When running Windows Explorer? When saving files? In a Command Prompt window?

    You could set up a shortcut to Windows Explorer, and, in the Target field, put:
    C:\Windows\explorer.exe /e,C:\Users\HowardC\Documents

    Replace HowardC with whatever is your user account.
