    This tweak broke shortcuts to folders in start menu. For example, the Downloads folder won't open:
    The item "Downloads" that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly.
    Hello nxrighthere, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Adding the affected folder back in This PC will also restore them for the Start menu. I'll do some more testing to see if I may be able to prevent that from being a side effect.

    Ok. Tutorial has been updated to where they will now remove the folders from This PC without affecting the same added folders on Start.

    It could be me but every download link simply redirects to the forum index, could you check it out?
