    Program Files Are Being Placed in Documents File


    To say that Windows 10 is driving me crazy would be an understatement. Here's the latest problem:


    Program files (for instance, Winaero, are being saved to the Documents file. So are Windows Metrics. So is just about anything! What the heck? It seems I have no control over this. They just end up there.


    I want my Program files, whether or not they are from Microsoft, to go into the Programs folder. And I want them to show up in the Start Menu, which, with rare exceptions, they do not.


    And how do I get program files that are currently in Docs file to Programs file? Can I just move them there?


    Why on earth would MS change this in Windows 10? It is absurd. I am ready to just go back to Win 7.


    Thank you for your help.

    :)

    Are my Registry Files all legitimate programs?

    Isn't there a web tool whereby I can check if programs listed in my REGISTRY FILES are legitimate programs?

    Microsoft Windows Home Server Corrupts Files

    Microsoft has warned Windows Home Server users not to edit files stored on their backup systems with several of its programs, including Vista Photo Gallery and Office's OneNote and Outlook, as well as files generated by popular finance software such as Quicken and QuickBooks. "When you use certain programs to edit files on a home computer that uses Windows Home Server, the files may become corrupted when you save them to the home server," Microsoft said in a support document posted last week. The document went on to list the software, which includes Windows Vista Photo Gallery, Windows Live Photo Gallery, OneNote 2003, OneNote 2007, Outlook 2007, Microsoft Money 2007 and SyncToy 2.0 Beta. Others programs, however, may also corrupt files stored on a home server powered by Microsoft's operating system. "Additionally, there have been customer reports of issues with Torrent applications, with Intuit Quicken and with QuickBooks program files," the document said. "Until an update for Windows Home Server is available, we recommend that [you] do not use the programs that are listed to save or to edit program-specific files that are stored on a Windows Home Server-based system."
