  3. OneDrive app opening Documents folder

    Long story short... When I click on my OneDrive app, it opens my Documents folder (folder in 'This PC').

    This evening I changed the location of my Documents folder to within OneDrive, and then tried to return it which somehow ended up with 'OneDrive' replacing 'Documents' in the 'This PC' list... I used a .bat file to restore 'Documents to the correct place here, but there still appears to be an issue with Onedrive.

    Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to fix this?

    Thank you!

  4. How to restore Documents folder when it used to be on OneDrive

    OneDrive app opening Documents folder

    I had checked a restore point, but unfortunately being a new laptop, there wasn't any (I'll be sure to make one before faffing around in future..!).

    Solution: Once I'd used the .bat file, the Location Property option had returned. I used the Location Property settings to relocate the Documents folder into OneDrive (the first step I had done) and this reset the issues I has having, allowing me the option to move the Documents folder back to being separate (I chose not to do this in the end as having it in OneDrive meant it automatically saved via OneDrive and to the 'This PC' Documents folder.
