    If you get the same problem in the future, please note that you do not need to create a new user account to solve the problem. You can fix it in the Registry in about 10 seconds - create the target folder you want to use then see section 4.4 of Capturing screen contents - the PrntScrn key, Win-Shift-S, the Snipping tool & Screenshots

    You can use similar procedures for relocating all other user folders after problems such as yours - see Relocating user folders in Windows 7 & Windows 10 {the Answer in that thread} Much of this guidance is also given in the TenForums tutorial on the subject - Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
