    Change to Location of User Folders Not Reflected in Settings App


    I followed the tutorial Documents Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 to move my Documents folder to a separate partition. Did the same thing for my Music, Pictures and Video folders. Everything worked great.

    Nevertheless, the Win10 Settings app at Settings > Storage > Change where new content is saved still thinks the default location is in the C: drive. I know this is wrong because my user files are being saved to their new location, as expected.

    Why does the Settings app still show the original location - or perhaps I overlooked something?

    Sorry, I missed what it is you want me to see.

    I did not use the method described in the link to move the folders in question - I used their Location tab. This successfully changed the default save location and moved all files and folders to the new location. I expected that the new default save location would appear in the Settings app, but it does not. As far as Settings is concerned, the default save location is still in C:

    Hi, I know you used the Location tab. Your question was about Settings > Storage > Change where new content is saved

    I was hoping there was something in that tutorial that might help or point you in the right direction.
