How to change where the buttons on start menu open to?

Windows 7.

How do I make, for example, 'Music' or 'Pictures' go to a different folder? My C:// drive is a small SSD, so none of my music or pictures will be located where the default location for 'Music' and 'Pictures' is.

Thanks.

How to set up routine backup of hard drive?

I want to back up my hard drive onto an external hard drive without having to redo the whole backup manually every time. Is there a way that I can set it up to sync, so that if I update the files on my computer, the files on the external hard drive will be updated too?

I also have two computers - a desktop with XP and a laptop with Windows 7. Anyone got a similar situation with a functional set up for backing up files on both, without causing my brain to explode?

Thanks!

Answer: 
It is easy on windows 7, xp you may have to get software or do it manually...On windows 7 just go to back...

How to keep a tower cool enough in a desk drawer?

Just got a great new desk with a drawer made to house my computer tower. When I open up that drawer, I notice it's very warm in there. I worry about my computer in that warm place. Whats a good cost effective way to keep it cool.

Answer: 
I'm no computer desk expert, but that whole put the tower in a drawer thing sounds like a really bad idea. The problem with this is that the computer case will have a couple fans that circulate the airflow to keep the inside of the case cool because the CPU and other components create heat (power = heat). If you put the computer case inside basically another box without any air holes then you're depriving it of airflow which will trap the heat inside. Depending on how power hungry your machine is you could easily overheat and kill the PC, especially if it's branded because Dell, HP etc use cheap parts. If it's fairly new then it'll be pretty low power, so there probably hasn't been any harm done. I would NOT use this as a permanent solution though. If you were to just like drill some vents out of the drawer then that would work really well. If you were to make it so the vents lined up with the intake and exhaust of the computer case that would work even better. This is kind of how the airflow in a computer case works, though you should note that if you have a standard branded PC then you likely won't have any bottom, top or side fans: http://hollii.de/temp/coolermaster_cm690_belueftung.jpg To sum things up, blocking the holes in the picture of the case is bad.
