Q: Documents folder missing under "This PC" Windows 10

Hi. I am running Windows 10 and recently noticed that the local C:\Users\ *user name* \Documents is missing from under the "This PC" heading, it only displays the OneDrive Documents folder. How can I restore the local Documents folder / put it back under the "This PC" heading. Thanks Justin

Answer

A:

Try the registry route..as in Windows 10 User Shell Folders Restore Default Paths. (You need the reg file #3, or refer to Table #2 for editing manually.)

Answer

A:

The regular Documents folder is redirected to OneDrive's Documents folder if you've selected the option "OneDrive" instead of "This PC Only" in the Documents and Pictures settings in OneDrive.

To cancel the redirection:

Right-click OneDrive icon in the Notification area, and click Settings. In the "Auto save" tab, select "This PC only" for Documents and/or Pictures.
