    Explorer displays outdated, unvalid download folder "S:/"


    On my explorer I see a system folder icon with downward blue arrow, indicating an outdated download folder. But I am not able to cancel it. The correct download folder is since long ago the windows standard folder appdata/Roaming/Downloads.

    The entries in the registry are to encrypted for me.
    Any idea?

    :)
