Windows 10: Documents folder in Windows Explorer opens to Docs folder on OneDrive Solved

    Documents folder in Windows Explorer opens to Docs folder on OneDrive


    When I open Windows Explorer, in the left pane below "This PC", the Documents folder opens the Docs folder on OneDrive (just noticed my Pictures folder is mapped to OneDrive as well).

    Downloads, Music, and Videos do not...they open their respective folders in my user account.

    How do I get rid of this OneDrive madness??

    Hello Ashley, :)

    It sounds like you may have Documents set to auto save to OneDrive. If so, setting it to auto save to This PC instead should sort this for you.

    Same for Pictures.
