    Location Tab Missing from Almost All Folders


    WinVer = 19041.508

    With one exception (and that one's Location Tab doesn't work), none of my folders, including new ones I create myself, have Location tabs.

    I did a due-diligence search and was overjoyed when I came up with this:
    How to Add or Remove Location tab in Folder Properties in Windows 10

    I d/l the Add file and ran it, no problems. Sadly, it did nothing- my folders still don't have a Location tab.

    Please, I'm getting desperate- I need to unleash a few Location redirects before I completely fill up my System SSD. Can someone please help me get Location tabs on my folders? If nothing else, at least on new folders that I create on my Gaming drive? It's absurd that they are not there by default!


    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Video Folder missing from user account folder and location tab missing...

    Hi

    I'm using version W10 x64 1803.

    I wanted to relocate the Videos folder and found the location tab is missing from the properties. I then realised that the Videos folder no longer appears in my user account folder.

    I had previously moved the Video folder from the default location.

    Seems like my current Video folder is no longer seen as one of the special user account folders.

    Would appreciate any suggestions on how I can fix this.

    No other issues with my system which runs absolutley fine.

    Thanks for your time.

    Location Tab Missing from Almost All Folders

    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions
