Windows 10: Moved Default User Folders With Location Tab, But Settings is Unchange

    Moved Default User Folders With Location Tab, But Settings is Unchange


    Peace on earth, goodwill towards all.

    I moved my default user folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, Video) from C to a different partition by using the Location tab. This successfully moved the folders and their contents to the new partition.

    I can see the folders and contents in the new partition. The folders no longer exist on C and %USERPROFILE% points to the new partition.

    And yet, when I go into Settings > System > Storage I see "New documents will save to This PC (C" and the same for the other folders.

    Obviously, I want those folders to be on the new partition. How do I make Settings understand that I already moved these folders with the Location tab?

    Take the drop down arrow next to the save location and choose the drive you want them to be on.

    You have it set up right. Mine works exactly right.

    Thank you. Everything seems to be working exactly as it should, regardless of what the Settings app says.
