    1. Right click or press and hold on the OneDrive icon in the taskbar notification area, click/tap on the menu (3 dots) button, and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)

    If OneDrive is currently not running to show this icon, then run: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\OneDrive\OneDrive.exe

    There is one issue with this. After turning this on, the Documents and Picture shortcuts in
    Code:
    This PC/Navigation Pane
    leads to
    Code:
    OneDrive/Documents
    or
    Code:
    OneDrive/Pictures.
    But when you turn this off i.e. when you change it to This PC again. The link doesn't change back to
    Code:
    %Userprofile%/Documents.
    It still points to
    Code:
    OneDrive/Documents
    .
    Plus, turning this off also messed up with auto screenshot save.

    The screenshot above was saved in
    Code:
    %Userprofile%/Pictures
    instead of
    Code:
    OneDrive/Pictures
    . The whole system is messed up completely. @Brink Please give a fix. I have tired registry at
    Code:
    HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/MyComputer
    but modifying it doesn't help.

    Well @Brinks, thanks to your post at this Link:: https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...tml#post476134 . I was able to fix my Documents and Pictures Folder (I tired the bat file for both and viola its fixed). Kindly, include same as option two in this post as well. It will help lots of (busy)people and save them hurdle of searching internet. I was suffering from this problem from very long time.
