I'd like to know the exact instructions for moving the page file from a single disk location to another disk in windows 7 I.e. from an SSD to a non-SSD drive.

I've spent about two hours searching - Google, Bing, Blekko - and read many forums. Please don't post philosophical discussions on speed increases or why its a bad idea to disable paging.

I'm looking for a quick answer on how to move a page

Uncheck "automatically manage paging file size for all drives" and you can change these settings. Highlight the drive you want it on, and select either a fixed size or system managed size, and then click "set". YOU HAVE TO CLICK THE SET BUTTON. Do the same to remove it from the drive you don't want it on. ("No paging file".)

Click ok, ok, ok, and you should be prompted for a reboot.
