    W-10 Default Data FOLDERS and Property Sheets ...

    c:\users\MyW-10-UserFolder\

    In MyW-10-UserFolder at c:\users\MyW-10-UserFolder\, some of the standard W10 data folders such as {Contacts;Documents;Music;Downloads;Saved Games;Favorites; etc) regardless of the folder icon, do *not have an editable "location" tab in the property sheet.

    Those folders in "MyW-10-UserFolder" created by Windows during the installation process have complete property sheets; the folders created or re-created by me for use in the "MyW-10-UserFolder" do not.
    How do I go about fixing those data folders that do not have a "location" tab in the folder's property sheet???

    thank you

    If you create a folder Windows assumes you put it where you want it. If you want a folder you created moved cut & paste or drag and drop to folder where you want it.

    I may be unclear about what you are asking as in the first paragraph you state that standard Windows folders don't have a Location tab but in the second paragraph you say they do.

    Response to JoeP517

    My post is not well written...

    What i meant to say is that 'some' sub-folders in my C:\Users\Username folder *don't have a property sheet that contains an editable "Location" tab; some folders *do have a property sheet that contains an editable "Location" tab.
    The default sub-folders in my Username folder created during the W-10 install process *do have property sheets with the Location Tab.

    Some how I lost the default folder "Desktop" from my Username folder and could not create a replacement folder for it with an editable 'Location" tab.
    (since I keep many files on my Desktop day-to-day, I want my default Desktop Folder 'located' on a separate non-OS disk.

    See How do I restore the default Windows 7 “Desktop” folder?. This should work for Win10 too.
