    Documents folder opens by default


    When I try to open a folder in Windows Explorer, it opens the "Documents" Folder by default. I have to choose "Open" or "Open in New Window" to get it right. If I select "Open Windows Explorer" or double click on the folder, my Documents folder opens. I have reset every setting I can think of to default settings. I installed IoBit Advanced System Care9 Pro and was fiddling with a bunch of settings before this occurred. Please help!

    Do you mean, when you click on any folder any where, or just the folder on the taskbar?

    Any folder anywhere (on the desktop, in Explorer, on a USB drive).

    Sometimes a drive or even clicking on settings or control panel in the start menu opens the documents folder

    Also, most shortcuts and applications as well (i.e. tried to run command.exe to check the default programs and the shortcut and the primary file both open the documents folder).

    Ive run antivirus, malware, and several windows cleaners.

    Well, unable to solve this issue, I just had to reinstall and rebuild Win10.

    That's what I usually do!
    Stay away from that 'IoBit' stuff, most of it is just nasty.
