    I rest Windows 10 and when I did I took the option to use OneDrive as the default. I subsequently changed the settings, which I showed in the previous post, but File Explorer "This PC" still shows Documents and Pictures on OneDrive. I think the easiest way to rectify it is to reset Window 10 again and specify "This PC" as the default, unless you know another approach.

    Thank you again for your help. I know it is difficult to assess a situation remotely.
    As a test, you could try setting them back to using OneDrive or some other location, and then setting them back to "This PC" afterwards to see if it may toggle it to the correct location.

    When I tried to switch where new content is saved, I didn't get any options other than "This PC".
    I am going to reset Windows 10

    Hi Durangoforcards, when you reset your PC did you choose the option to keep your personal files or remove?
