Win 10 some user folders missing Location tab in folder properties

New laptop...Win 10 has 2 drives... SSD drive (C:) and a SATA drive(E)...
I want to change the locations of Desktop, Favorites, Documents, Music, Pictures etc to the SATA drive...
For more storage space...

Settings > System > Storage only has Apps, Documents, Music, Photos, Videos available to move...

In User Profile > Documents, Downloads, Music have the Location tab and I have correctly pointed these 3 to E:\...

But Desktop, Favorites does NOT have a Location tab...

Was this overlooked by Msoft...???...is there a fix...???...Regedit maybe...???

I have way too much stuff to put everything on the C:\ drive...

Any and all suggestions appreciated...

Have you tried the new Change where new content is saved when you scroll down System/Storage right column

After the new window opens you might have some different choices.

In my 15046 both Desktop and Favourites do have location tabs.

Whenever you move a folder using the location tab to another location, a duplicate folder is created at the original location. This is because some programs may insist on using a specific path. Hence if you look at C:/ Users/ [you] all the folders will still be there but the ones you have moved to another drive will not have location tabs. Looking at the folders in 'This PC' or Quick access will show the proper (moved) locations on the other drive.

Do we get some kind of prize for correctly guessing where that settings entry is?

Cortana will not win it. She doesn't know. Neither does the ghastly, useless, all American Bing.
