How to change the local path in TFS 2010?

Have been using TFS 2010 for a while, I consider it a pretty stable and good Development environment for .Net Development. It might be frustrating at time, but once you get comfortable using it, its pretty neat. One of things people get frustrated with is to figure out how to change the local path of your working directory. In TFS they something called Workspaces which is actually your Local working folder. You can have more than one workspace. Within a Workspace you can have the Local Working Folder path mapped to your Source Control Folder. TFS also allows you to edit your Workspace and the Local Folder Paths within it.
