Moving my pagefile

My laptop's HD is partitioned into 3, and I'd like to move the pagefile to a partition other than C, but it won't let me, as its in use by Windows. How to, please?

Edit: Is this a bad idea in the first place?

I don't think it's a good idea, unless maybe it's on a different physical drive.

No point putting it on another partition other than it will make a bit more space on C:\Drive

Itwasntme,

go to control panel-system-advanced-performance settings-advanced-virtual memory-change, and in here
highlight the "C" drive, click on no paging file and then click on set.

Highlight whatever partition you want to move it to, set your size of pagefile, or system managed, set and apply.
