    Home folder named Folders is this a bug?


    Hello!

    I have a notebook running Windows 10 Pro v1803 and I just noticed that the user files icon on the desktop reads "Folders" instead of "Sotiris" which is my user name. This is also what I see as a shortcut in Classic Start Menu instead of "Sotiris" it reads "Folders. If I press Shift+Win to see the original Windows 10 start menu it reads "Sotiris" if I hover the mouse over the user icon. Is this some bug I should worry about? I tried to logoff and logon but didn't change anything (I haven't tried to restart yet). I saw that my files are accessible either from the "Folders" icon or by manually navigating to C:\users\sotiris so at least I have no severe damage, thanks God. But I would like to fix it. I hope it will fix by restarting the computer. Otherwise please tell me if you have any other suggestion.

    Thank you in advance.

    :)

  3. Getting folder names and not location in VB .Net

    Hey guys,
    I'm getting a problem with my line of code and can't seem to find a workaround that works (all I can find is VB 6)

    Code: CheckedListBox1.Items.AddRange(IO.Directory.GetDirectories("my directory here"))[/quote] This deposits all folders locations into a list box but I only need the actual folder name
    e.g:

    Deposits: C:\Users\Onafets
    But all I want is "Onafets"

    Is there any way to do this?

    cheers

    Hidden folders

    I installed `Kane and Lynch` on my PC twice in Program Files(x86) folder but I can`t find them (2 folders with game). But free space on my HDD is lower. So there`re those folders on my hdd. I use option `unhide` hidden folders but still can`t find them. Any suggestions? How can i delete those hidden folders?

    When I run istallation for this game I can see those folders in Program Files(x86) folde.

    I`m using Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
