    windows 10 build 10240 need help with This PC System folders


    need help with This PC System folders. The folders are incorrect. Probably I did it unknowingly. Now I need a pro to tell me how to delete them using Regedit and replacing them as they once were. Please

    I can assure you it wasn't easy. Only two folders are incorrect. I have two PICTURE folders. Only one Picture folder should exist and the other should be Videos. Can you help?

    What happens when you right click one, select Properties, and then look at the location tab?

    Each one should say C:\Users\(your account name)\(documents, music, etc.)

    Your Recent suggestion.


    I either created or these libraries. Copied the files into these libraries and then deleted them because This PC didn't recognize them. If you are familiar with "Libraries" which I used on Windows 8.1. I had previously copied "Libraries" to Windows 10. I now created "Network Shortcuts" under This PC. This allowed me to create a shortcut under "Network Shortcuts" to my "Libraries".
    This seems to accomplish my needs. The Folders under This PC are wrong and obviously cannot be changed. I have no idea why Network Shortcuts worked. Again thanks. In the future, possibly a fix will be coming from Microsoft.

    This PC


    I have only one missing System Folder in This PC. The correct library is located in c:\users\nancy\documents and also in C:\\Passbook\Documents. Any new ideas?
