    Relocate folder locations

    I got myself into this mess. Please pleaseee, if anyone could help me solving it I'd be really grateful since it's driving me mad.

    Initially I wanted to relocate my main folders such as Documents/Music/Downloads etc. into new location. However, I somehow managed to combine the 'target location' of Downloads, Pictures and Music together and for the life of me, I cannot split them.

    I tried to relocation each one to the new assigned folder but they ended up combining anyway.

    i also tried restore to default for each of them.

    Since I also suck at explaining, here is the photo attached below
