Look for the "datadir" option - I think it can only be specified as a command-line option therefore you'll need to create a custom shortcut to start your bitcoin-qt (or modify the shortcut you already have).

With CIYAM anyone can create 100% generated C++ web applications in literally minutes.

Is it really that hard for you to create a desktop shortcut and change the target to the following?

Code:
Target: "C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe"  -datadir=D:\btcdata

Well done - next week we'll see if you can get you into the dark depths of using the ("black box") Windows console. Wink
