    If you go to my PC
    Then scroll to Document folder
    Right Click you have 3 choices
    One Pin To Start
    Or Pin Quick Access
    Or Right Click
    Scroll to Send To
    Then click Desktop
    All Three does work as I have both my
    Documents and Pictures done that way

    The only thing I can suggest is to turn on "Show all folders" in the navigation pane, and open your Documents folder under your user folder in the navigation pane.

    This link looked like it might be what I want: This PC 'Folders' - Add or Remove in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Unfortunately, it only hides the links. Using a shortcut to one of the folders still takes me to Thic PC -> [folder]

    I found a way to get what I wanted, though. Through a combination of re-naming Documents, creating new folders, deleting Documents and re-naming the new folder to "Documents" I eventually got it. I'm not sure of the exact steps, but I had to delete "Documents" more than once to get it working.
