    Changed Main Drive location now having problems


    I recently bought a Dell G3 gaming labtop but the main drive (C) was a small 100 gb's where as the D drive is 1tb so I looked into how to change the default drive which led me to regedit so I changed the default location from there the thing is I still had to transfer the programs from the C drive to D because before I did that errors would pop up when id try to open a program. Now I'm having recovery issues it tells me I have to restart the labtop also there's a blue framed transparent square in the middle of my screen every time I open a program then close it you can see part of that program in the box, this seems to only happen when a game is running or after I close it or if it doesn't respond, Id like some help on how to fix this.

    :)

    Changed the 'downloads' location to E-Drive. Couldn't reverse!!

    But the problem is whenever I click the properties of Downloads
    folder, it is showing the properties dialog box of E-drive partition. How could I solve this?
