    Hi Guys,

    I accidently changed the location of the Windows 10 Pictures folder to E:\ thinking it would create a Pictures folder on E:\ but alas, it mapped directly to the root of the E:\ and now my pictures are saved in the root of E:\ and not a subfolder named Pictures. Does anyone know how I can change it so Pictures folder maps to a folder on E:\? There is no option to change the location from the root of the drive.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    you can simply type the location with full path or use the Move button and browse to the target folder as per your wish.

    That’s the properties of the folder. My issue is the Pictures folder is mapped to the root of a drive.

    Thanks

    There Pictures library is just a link to whatever folder you want and on the screen you can see its properties. Open File Explorer, right-click Pictures, go to Properties and then Location. From here you can change it back where you want.

    Im wondering how did you change the location in first place that you have troubles to put it back? Please share some screens if the above do not help.

    I ended up removing the E: drive from the OS via “Disk Manager”. The “Pictures” folder defaulted back to C:\Users\UserID\Pictures. I then added E: back and all was fine.

      Glad to see it worked for you somehow. Im still curious what would block you to change the setting back via standard GUI. 🙂
