    Are you referring to Relocating user folders in Windows 7 and Windows 10? That procedure is valid for Windows 10.

    Ok, Denis...
    I'm good to go now, I figured out how to stop windows 10 from adding shot-cut icons to the users/public folder.
    Seems windows 10 is adding the shot-cut icon in the user/public folder when I tick add short-cut to desktop when installing software.
    No matter on which drive I install it in. But if I don't tick add short-cut to desktop, and simply go to the software folder and manually send the desktop short cut is gets installed in the admin users folder which is the location I wanted it installed in the first place. So that fixed my whole issue. The annoying pop-up (You need to provide administrator permission to change the settings) is gone...
    Amazing how simple the fix was, But it ain't simple if you don't know what's causing the problem...
    Maybe this post will help someone else...
    The funny thing is if he or she does not get to the end of this post they will not know how simple the simple fix...

    Now that I got everything working to my liking. I start moving all the folders from my SSD to my Hard Drive...
    Thanks again Denis for all your help... RRG
