    Sorry for the long wait for reply.
    Were already set to default. I moved them and moved them back. Still the same issue.
    I ended up just deleting and recreating everything. That got the most of the folders to show. Still missing 1 or 2 but arent ones I use anyways.
    Still have the issue where clicking on my user folder in quick access bring me to This PC instead of c:\users\[un] but I think that is a limit of Windows 10 and nothing I can do about it.
    Sorry to hear, that procedure in tutorials didn't work for you.

    Regarding starting explorer in This PC or Quick Access. Have you try to check this option in Folder Option?

    I think the issue is that %userprofile% is now a special place for Explorer that does not take account the folder paths.

    Tested this by moving a couple of the folders to a second HDD. Going to those folders from Quick Access takes me to %userprofile%\Downloads instead of D:\Downloads. I noticed this by hitting the Up Folder button in Explorer.

    Another feature that is suppose to help people, that ends up getting in my way.
