Windows 10: Issue with user folders link in start menu ! Solved

    Issue with user folders link in start menu !

    Hello everybody,

    I'm desesperated because after spent already 5 hours, i can't get it solved...
    Here is my issue :

    I was in my users folders & deleted them (Download, Favorites, Videos etc...)
    Then, i realized that my start menu which has option to "ON" to make them appear, got issue with link missing.

    I recreated all the forders by default with windows tools (regedit & i have all references created in reg %USERPROFILE%\* & in my user folder)

    But the link is still missing !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So... i've tried a last attempt by, creating a new user, & create Start Menu Places & pushing the links etc but even with that, nothing done (looks like it's more for people getting grey menu on/off)

    So, my question is : HOW to retrieve the missing link from elements in start menu for :
    - Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos.

    All the others links are working :
    - Homegroup, Network, Personal Folder, File Explorer, Settings, Power, All apps.

    Any help/fix will be really welcome!

    I found the fix by launching the .reg : "Restore All User Folders To This PC 64-bit"
