    "Documents" duplicated

    Hello, I'm not exactly sure where I should post this, but I hope this section is close enough.
    I was wondering if anyone could help me with something that happened to me recently. Out of nowhere, loads of "Documents" appeared under "This PC"

    Have you tried the latest Win 10 build? Looks like some kind of bug.

    Somehow it fixed itself, but came back later. I'm currently running the latest build.

    Ah! Sorry, I went by your system specs.

    It seems to be happening to me too.
    Whenever I rename, delete or otherwise modify anything in my Documents folder (that includes saving new files as well as moving them), it causes the Documents entries to increase by one. New explorer windows will always start off with just one entry, but any windows I leave open will always have the extra Documents entries until they're closed.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. I thought I was going crazy! And yeah, I haven't updated my specs, sorry .

    Edit: I fixed my specs, especially for you!
