How can I change the url of my forum?

My forum's url structure is like this:
http://www.example.com/forum/
http://www.example.com/forum/forumdisplay.php...
http://www.example.com/forum/showthread.php...

It was 3.7.3, patched to 3.8.7 PL1

I want to change it to:
http://www.example.com/
http://www.example.com/forumdisplay.php...
http://www.example.com/showthread.php...

How can I do this?
