JustinBlem asked on

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

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.)
