  2. Location-tab in Properties

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The information provided by you in the post, seems to be the Location tab is missing under
    Properties.



    Usually the Location tab will be present under
    Properties
    for the folders listed under Quick Access (Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures) and folders listed under
    This PC (3d Objects, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos).



    In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please provide us the screenshot of the windows where you are not able to get the
    Location tab under properties. (Please follow the steps mentioned in the

    screenshot
    posted by Shawn ‘Cmdr’ Keene on Oct 2, 2015 to post the screenshots.) Do not share any personal information in the screenshots.



    We await your response.

    Documents Location Changed But Property Location Is Correct - ???

    I can't figure out why E:\Gary can't be seen in File Explorer.

    Sooooo .... let's try to get the special User folders back to normal

    These are ok per the location tab you posted
    Music C:\Users\Gary\Music
    Pictures C:\Users\Gary\Pictures

    No locations tab for documents when I click properties. [​IMG]


    Documents: E:\Videos\Documents location points to E:\Gary\Documents
    Videos: E:\Videos location points to E:\Videos (Could you confirm that with the properties> location tab)

    Try this in this order

    On E:\Videos\Documents
    Select properties > location tab
    Press the [ Restore Default ] button
    Yes to move files if prompted

    On E:\Videos
    Select properties > location tab
    Press the [ Restore Default ] button
    Yes to move files if prompted

    That should put the two user folders back on C:\Users\Gary - please confirm the locations after restoring the default

    If everything looks good, then all that is left is to figure out why E:\Gary isn't visible in File Explorer
    Then put the folders where you want them. I might suggest a different structure if this becomes a sticky mess

    Something like E:\Usr\Gary\Userfolders - but see if the above resolves the issue.

    It's very possible that E:\Gary is really E:\Videos and is masked by the slight of hand Windows does with the special folders.
