    So basically I have found it isn't allowing me to make a Pictures folder either
    Rename the duplicate folder back to Pictures.

    Attachment 158300Hi

    OK I am having File Explorer problems.

    Firstly under "This PC" I seem to have 2 Desktop folders (see pic)

    By default, I have downloaded files (music, movies etc) going straight onto the desktop. Tonight, however, I couldn't find my recently downloaded files under This PC in either desktop folder, I had to go to C: USERNAME and find them under my username's desktop folder.

    What have I done and how do I rectify this, please?


    Suggestion :
    I am suspecting that your user account is corrupted.
    Create a new user account with exactly the same privileges > logon to it > use it and see if you have the same problem.

    As 'Edwin' suggested, you can't just rename the duplicate Desktop folder with the Pictures icon ? Then verify that the path is to C;/UserName/Pictures by r-click properties/Location tab.

    Thanks everyone. I have sorted it. I went to one site that had a download file to remove Pictures, soon as I deleted it I had just the one Desktop

    Thanks for all the help, much appreciated

    Good for you. Was it a bat file like Option 2/ Step 10 in Brink's tutorial ? - Restore Default Location of Personal Folders in Windows 10

    In any event, mark topic solved so others with your problem can find solution, thanks.

    It was this page, I deleted the Picture folder. It wouldn't allow me to do it any other way as there was no picture folder. I did try to delete the Desktop one which we thought was the pic folder but there was no delete option.
