    Change folder name in This PC


    Hi, I just upgrade windows 10 from windows 7 and I'm customizing some default folder to match my settings in my windows 7. I got a little problem and it's really annoying me. Here is the screenshot of my This PC

    as you can see, I change the windows default folder for downloads to drive F:\. How can I make it to show the drive name instead of drive letter? I used the same steps I do in windows 7 and it was working, but in windows 10, it change the download folder to drive letter. Does anyone knows how to edit this? Thanks

    Downloads is a system folder.
    Try restoring to default by selecting Restore Default

    The name "Downloads" will stay even if the location has changed.

    The problem is when the target is a partition, the download folder change to partition drives, but when I try to move it on a folder, the name didnt change, so is there a way to change the name of that?
