Because I cannot leave well enough alone, I have tried "tweaking" things in my copy of Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
I prefer to have the folders for things such as documents, pictures, videos, et cetera on a large hard drive while keeping Windows itself on a smaller partition on another drive.
So after installing Windows I routinely relocate the Windows "My" folders from the default location, such as "C:\Users\myuserid\Pictures", to a folder on a different drive.
Well, I am not sure how I did it, but things have gotten screwed up and I have no idea how to even search for a possible fix for the problem. Currently, Windows Explorer shows the following list of folders under my Windows 7 user id.
Some notes on the above snapshot:
- The blacked out area is just hiding my user id on this Windows 7 system.
- The areas in yellow highlight duplicates for what should be the "My Pictures" and "My Videos" folders. The duplicates open up the exact same (relocated) folder. I have no idea why I have these folders have dups. I would like to safely get rid of the dup.
- For some reason the actual name of the relocated folder is displayed, i.e. "Pics" instead of "My Pictures". I can live with this, but I don't believe it is supposed to work this way.
- What the heck happened to "My Documents"?? I could swear there is supposed be a "My Documents" folder in that list. (No??)
Can anyone point me in a direction that might allow me to fix whatever it is that I've broken?
