    Try renaming that "Videos - Copy" folder to "Public Videos". You'll then have two folders named the same.
    That's irrelevant. The point is that if in File Explorer you copy the folder shown as 'Public Videos' (but actually named C:\Users\Public\Videos) in Windows 10 it is displayed as another 'Public Videos' folder (but actually named C:\Users\Public\Videos - Copy). In Windows 7 it is displayed with its correct name.

    This bug exists in 10, but not in 7.

    Well this is pointless, you don't think it exists in Windows 7 even though I demonstrated the same issue happening. The only difference is the way the copy/paste function in explorer works is different in 10 than 7.

    Windows 7 when you click copy and paste, it creates a copy of the real folder name.
    Windows 10 when you click copy and paste, it creates a copy of the alias folder name, which makes more sense.

    If anything it is a bug in earlier versions than 10.

    *sigh*
    No it doesn't.

    AndreTen has already proved that it creates a folder named 'Videos - Copy' as it should. The bug is that File Explorer doesn't show the true name of the copied folder.

    ...It happens with library folders.. did a test with Videos, as it's empty here :)

    lx07 who first reported this problem in post #365 shows the same thing.

    Anyone see this? Copy paste a folder in file explorer and the "- copy" isn't shown in file explorer.

    This how the same copied folders appear in Windows 7 - all names correctly displayed.

    Interesting ... If you delete the folder you made a copy of (ie. Videos) and then look in Recycle Bin, it shows as Videos - Copy

    The special folders contain a hidden file that Windows explorer reads and follows the code in the file to adjust the display and name of the folder.

    There should be a tutorial in Sevenforums and possibly here that lists them to recover a lost special folder

    I think that this may be cause of the confusion, recycle bin does not read the hidden data so presents differently from Explorer

    On my sys, when I click on task view, it shows me thirty days of all docs, spreadsheets, chrome, pdf's, videos, pics, edge, notepad, etc... etc... But in any instance where I opened a doc or spreadsheet on my other devices, they are transparent instead of opaque. And clicking them either does nothing, or gives me an error message that that file location can NOT be found or doesn't exist. So my question is, IF all these items are supposed to be saved to the cloud for Timeline's purposes, why can't I open any of them on a different device, and why is it looking for them in their original folder, instead of the cloud???????
    That sounds like all you are seeing on the other devices is a thumbnail reference to the original. Have no idea why you can't actually get to them. Syncing or something? Not a Timeline expert......

    My 'Copied' then 'Deleted' folders aren't even showing up in the Recycle Bin!

    EDIT: I've got a whack of weird things going on right now though...

    The whole special folders coding system goes back to the later win 3.x and was also in the 9.x systems, I think it it used to be a desktop.ini file but will have to confirm and check if it's still done the same way.

    Isn't what we should get. That's what I'm getting on both accounts. Upgrade!

    I was all prepared to ask the same question, Mike, but reading a bit more carefully, I'm not sure that's what they're talking about.

    So, I have the snippet but decided not to ask the question.
