    Problem with Quick access


    Hi all,,,I don't know what has happened but I redirected from Quick Access Documents, Pictures music, to my D drive and when I look at the properties of those in quick access they point to D drive which is ok, but downloads is there and there is nothing in it and it points to C drive and the folder is empty. I tried to relocate but in the properties there is no Location tab, only General, Sharing, Security, Previous Versions and Customize. Also I cannot unpin it from Quick Access even if I delete the Downloads folder on C users,
    Can someone help please to get it back as it should be.

    Hello Len,

    If needed, the tutorial below may be able to help restore the default location of your Downloads folder.
