The location of the directory can be controlled by the environment variable MATHEMATICA_PREFERENCES, which specifies the path to the preferences. Evaluate the following expression in a notebook to bring up relevant online documentation: FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["GettingStarted", "File Layout (Windows)"]] It will be under the subsection labeled "Front End." You can change the environment variable via the System control panel. See the Windows NT documentation for further info on how this is done. -- P.J.
