    Experiencing the same duplicated users folders with 10061 after a clean install.

    I think we'll just have to live with it until MS fixes it ... or a member posts the registry key to change.

    Do not delete the 'duplicate folders'. If you do, the real folder (Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos) will get deleted.
    Mine were empty, so I could play and not lose anything. (I have to retest - the only folder automatically recreated was Documents, but I might not have waited long enough before I manually created the special folders deleted).

    The duplicate references in the navigation pane return,, as Edwin mentioned, once the real folder exists.

    I personally think it's not a bug or anything. Those are probably separate links for desktop and tablets modes that points to the same location.

    Or probably local and microsoft account folder links.

    You might be right.

    Did anyone notice that there are six default Libraries now?

    Sort of, I'm still playing around with the doubles. Camera Roll and Saved Pictures are under Pictures (I assume CR is OneDrive and SP is photo app). You can't get rid of either one ... at least I couldn't - they keep coming back!

    The Camera Roll sent me down the "maybe it's OneDrive related"... deleting one of the duplicates and running cCleaner Registry after sort of reinforced that "connected Storage" entries kept coming back every time I saved and cleaned them up.

    I fired up OneDrive and let the sync occur hoping that might straighten it out automagically. Some new options in setting up OneDrive (different location option - aha! maybe I'm on the right track). Well it didn't - I still believe in magic (of a young girl's heart...) though.

    The next step was to try moving the location of the user system files - tried Documents (without moving the files - there were no files, but I wanted to keep the folder Documents under my profile).

    No problem - then delete one of the duplicates - ok, the other other duplicate failed to find the directory that was just removed - good.

    Documents exists under my profile, but it's a plain folder. It seemed promising, only one reference to Documents in the navPane, so the other 4 followed suit (Downloads, Music, Pictures, and Videos)

    I left it simmer for a while and now there are are now THREE references to the special folders in the nav pane. The folders were recreated in the moved location. and the third folder is still a plain folder.

    I'm going to let this go and wait for a MS update - there's no harm in leaving the references there, annoying, but harmless.

    I think having the option to change default save locations, it gives double user folders/libraries.

    Yeah, the "Save Locations" setting seems to be brain dead. Drive selections, not folder selections, but maybe that's what MS was thinking -
    "Tell me the drive and I'll handle the rest of it. Don't worry your pretty little head about it"

    Playing a little more, I changed the Save Location for music (in Settings) to G:\ - it created G:\Slartybart\Music and added that location to my Music Library. This corresponds to your Music app location image.

    However, changing the Save Location back to This PC , leaves the extraneous folder on G: and in my Music Library (default save location property is removed from the G: folder though)

    An observation: one of the 'duplicates' in your posted Explorer image, Edwin, does not have the folder type icon. I can't tell if it's a 'special' folder from the image though. I still have the 'duplicates' with the folder icon, but the Music Libraries newly created folder does not. This might just be a Windows crawler issue and eventually the folder would have the special folder icon.

    I'm really going to let this rest - there are too many hooks in flux (Libraries, Location Settings, Explorer navPane, OneDrive, Security (fully qualified domain\user)).

    As Dick said earlier, this seems to be a non-issue ... a non-critical cosmetic/presentation Tech Preview release bug.

    I have not fed MS yet, but I will.

    Still double folders on clean installed 10074.
    I was wrong and it's not Local-MS Account related (as I previously suspected) because I haven't signed-in yet to MS Account.

    Anyway, it doesn't bother me. Just reporting.
