    How to stop Windows 10 adding \Documents to Documents library


    I've been using Windows 10 for a few months. In the past month or so, it has started adding %USERPROFILE%\Documents to my Documents library every time I restart. I don't want this to happen.

    The folders I want in my Documents library are
    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Documents (default)
    %USERPROFILE%\OneDrive\Documents
    C:\Users\Public\Documents

    I don't want %USERPROFILE%\Documents in the library because Windows and various applications put folders in there that I hardly ever need to look at (Scanned Documents, Fax, Downloads, etc.) I put my real documents in %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Documents (which I created).

    For the past month or so, Windows 10 has added %USERPROFILE%\Documents to the Documents library every time I restart, and also made it the default save location. If I remove it from the library, it is added again next time I restart. How do I stop this happening?
