on my home pc I want to simplify things when it falls to accessing my home folder, so I would like to make my c:\Users\myusername folder pointing to a virtual drive created ad-hoc, such as Y:. In this I would spare the tediousness of writing that long path every time I want some application I am writing to access some files in my home directory.

Any ideas on how to do it? A friend of mine once did that with a simple command, but it was probably at the times of MS-DOS. I wonder if that command got preserved during time till my Windows 7, and which command was that?
