  1. Windows 10 document / download etc shortcuts point to one drive


    Hi,

    The main shortcuts for documents/ downloads / music / pictures in Windows 10 currently all point to onedrive, which I dont use. I would like them to point to the folders on my SSD (C drive) instead. Could someone help me make this happen please?

    Thanks

    Hi Jerry, you're welcome.

    Here's mine after I rt clk'd on my Documents Folder like you show in Scrsht 11:

    I'd like to wait until you reply to my question in Scrsht 12, if it is a remnant of the process try deleting the one on the dsktp and see if the one in send to also disappears. If it stays in send to, test it, and if you're still having problems I'd suggest you could go back to: Option One: To Add or Remove Items in Send To context menu for Your Account (current user) and do Step 3 to remove it and start over using Step 4 but be very careful of your steps in creating the shortcut and be sure you d&d that shortcut to the send to part of the address.

    I'm busy today and I probably won't be back until the evening.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
