  1. System folder namesake


    My Desktop folder and Documents folder are both named "Documents" and these folders have the same location, both of them show all files on my desktop. I can't edit the system folder.

    So any software like Viber PC that its data files usually located in Documents folder but the software can't find this folder and it just creates data folder directly on my desktop. How can I fix this trouble?

    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    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date.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.
