    Actually, there are issues, again. I have removed all "user folders" from windows explorer, using appropriate 64-bit registry hacks from here:How to Remove the Folders From “This PC” on Windows 10
    However, phantom "videos" and "pictures" folder keep popping in, like this:

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

  3. How to delete a phantom folder from Windows 10 Photos | Folders

    Thanks for the suggestion. But I've already been there and done that. This Music folder does nor appear on the list in the location you point to. Only the actual Pictures folders are there, with the handy "X" boxes. The phantom Guitar folder is not an option.

    Any other possibilities?

    This PC, Pictures and Video Folder issue


    I have recently looked at the folders in "This PC" where you have pictures, music, , documents, etc. The label for both the Video folder and Picture folder is both "Pictures". The location in properties show both linked to the physical pictures location on my drive (D:"account"\pictures). So I have two questions:

    1. How to rename these two icons to make one Pictures and the Videos?
    2. How to fix the issue where updating one with the location changes the other?

    I am attaching a picture showing what I am currently seeing.
