    Windows 10

    '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".
