    Default Pictures Folder is Gone

    For some reason, my picture folder is in "Quick Access" pinned. When I go into the properties of the Photos folder that is pinned in "Quick Access", I look at the locations tab and it says it's in my User Folder. Though it does not appear inside of the User Folder, whereas Documents, Music, Downloads, and Videos folders are. I've unchecked "Hidden Items" and it's still not there. Now, if I type in the directory manually it opens as if it's there. On the left pane in the Windows Explorer where "This PC" is at, I have two Documents. One has the regular icon, the other has a picture icon. When I click on either of them, they take me to the Documents folder.

    As you can see below somewhat of my predicament. Any help of how to get my pictures folder back to normal in "This PC" and my User Folder would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S. I have just realized my Documents folder icon inside the User Folder has the "One Drive" icon. I am not sure as to why that is as I've disabled One Drive completely on my computer. Extremely frustrating.

    P.P.S. I deleted the "Documents" folder that has the Pictures folder icon and it deleted my actual Documents folder as well.
