    User/profile is downloads folder


    So i don't know what i did but my "User" profile shows the download symbol.
    Sorry it's not in English

    (this means users/profiles)

    (this is supposed to be my user/profile but somehow it has downloads icon)
    Imgur: The magic of the Internet
    This is what i get when i open the user folder
    Imgur: The magic of the Internet
    This is what I expect.
    And the path is still C:\Users\User.
    And yes my downloads go in C:\Users\User\Downloads
    Is this a problem? How do I fix It? Do I need to fix It?
    I restored the downloads folder (that's why it is in English) but nothing changed. Thanks for taking your time to reply!

    The "C:\Users\User\Downloads" is normal, Users is default with Windows install and User is the log-in name created when Windows is first set up. The default Folders list such as Downloads, Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, etc., is normal under C:\Users\User\.

    The downloads folder is supposed to be my User. This is my C:/Users and it is supposed to have my User like yours.

    Looks like for whatever reason the Downloads Folder got moved out of the proper User Folder, should be able to either create a new Folder under the User then move the files into it or just move that Downloads Folder to where it should be.

    When I open it acts like it's the user profile.

    There is downloads folder inside which acts as the main place where stuff is stored. I restored it because I thought that could fix it but it didn't.
    If i move/delete it then where is my user profile.
