    User default document in onedrive


    Hi,

    I just completed a brand new windows 10 installation from CD. *Smile
    Every thing go ok. The only problem I have is that one :
    When I install applications (let say for exemple Magix video), the "magix specific" folders are created in the folder onedrive/documents instead of my user documents folders.*Sad

    I can't find out how to cop with that.... It's annoying because i don't want to fill one onedrive with temporary files.

    Has someone encounter this problem and solved it??

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 Default Path for Documents - Changing from OneDrive to User location

    How do I change the default path definition for "Documents" from my OneDrive location C:\Users\...\OneDrive\Documents

    to C:\Users\...\Documents

    The default for everything is OneDrive and I don't want that. I want the file explore to point to my local C drive and not the OneDrive start

    Thanks

    File Explorer Libraries resetting on Wondows 10

    I have been testing some more and found a partial fix.

    If I move the default documents folder from C:\users\myname\Documents to C:\users\myname\OneDrive\Documents and set it as the Default & Public Save location for the Library it remains so after a reboot and the C:\users\myname\Documents folder is no longer
    added automatically.

    This now corrects the save locations and the list of Folders included in the Documents Library.

    However, after a reboot the order of Folders in the Library is still changed.

    Library set as:

    C:\users\myname\OneDrive\Documents --- Default and Public Save

    \\Server\MyDocs

    \\Server\SharedDocs

    Becomes:

    \\Server\MyDocs

    \\Server\SharedDocs

    C:\users\myname\OneDrive\Documents --- Default and Public Save

    after reboot.

    This is much better but the order should not change.

    Any ideas would be greatfully received.
