    Sure, you could pin any folder location you like to Quick access.

    It's no bother. :)

    Did you "Pin to Quick access" the folders from within your "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder like below to have them show in Quick access?

    Yup, I browsed to the full directory and then added it, I think i will try to live with it like that, One last thing, Now i got all the folders back (since i restored the reg key to show all those silly 6 folders in "This PC"), Except for one folder "Desktop" folder, I can see it in full dir but when i go to user's folder, you think there is a fix for that or something?

    You might see if using OPTION TWO to restore the Desktop folder may help.

    Hi Brink, I tried it and it didn't work, I even tried to check the registry key for desktop (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders) and it was set to %USERPROFILE%\Desktop (as it should), Is there another key/string that i need to check or any other way to fix it? I don't want to reinstall windows just for that you know

    Surreal90,

    If you like, you could do a repair install that should fix it without losing anything.

    Hi Brink, I think I'm gonna downgrade to 8.1, I tried to use 10 for a while, But it feels a little buggy / unfinished to me, i don't know, maybe it's just me.. Anyway, Thanks a lot for your contestant support and wish you all the best :).

    Surreal90,

    If it helps, the issue you are having is not common. If you like, I find that a clean install of Windows 10 gives the best results.
