ID:	68304 Hi there! As you can see from the attached photo, my library got messed up somehow. Now the downloads folder has all the other folders in it, although they exit outside as well. And some programs like Utorrent find another default downloads folder : /// Is there a way to reset all this? Thanks in advance!

    Hello and welcome to TenForums :)

    If you have set up restore points for your PC you should be able to restore back to an earlier point in time before the folders were changed.
    System Restore Windows 10

    If you do not have restore points set (make sure you do in future) then you can try and manual reset the folders by right clicking on them, select Properties and go to the Location tab where you can Restore Default.

    Thank you, turns out the downloads folder location was set to D:// where all the libraries are. Never did a restore point so will do it now thanks!
