  1. How To Separate Windows 10 Document Folders?


    So I messed up when I assigned my folders, now Videos & Downloads share a directory and so does Documents & Pictures, I've tried setting each of them to their defaults, but all it does is just point each pair back to one of the default directories. How do I fix this please? I tried searching online, but I only seem to find posts about separating Documents from OneDrive.Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. How To Separate Windows 10 Document Folders?

    Add a Folder from Windows 10 HDD

    Ok yea, just use a shortcut. Right click the folder you want to show in documents and select "create shortcut" and move that shortcut to the documents folder.

    If you copy folders to documents, the entire folder contents is copied, use shortcuts instead so you dont use up hard drive space having duplicate folders in 2 separate places.
