Windows 10: 'This PC' pictures folder is connected to OneDrive.

  1.    05 Jul 2017 #1

    'This PC' pictures folder is connected to OneDrive.

    When I open file explorer, in the 'This PC' tab there is downloads, documents, videos, etc...

    All of them have the locationC:\Users\<my name>

    However with pictures it is C:\Users\<my name>\OneDrive

    In order to find my real pictures folder I have to go to Windows C > users > <my name> > pictures

    I would like the pictures tab to go directly to that folder instead of the one drive one, I have tried changing the location on the properties page but it keeps coming up with an error.

    Hello Fudz, :)

    Double check your OneDrive settings using the tutorial below to make sure that you have "Pictures" set to auto save to "This PC only" instead of "OneDrive".
