    Hi @ Wilders

    I need some expert advice please

    At some past time I have had OneDrive as an App on my PC which I removed. I still access OneDrive via the onedrive website using a shortcut from the taskbar. Although I don't use OneDrive

    I have recently found out that the two Documents shortcuts on my Explorer Tree (one for QuickAccess and the other under This PC) point to OneDrive, as per the image. So when I thought was saving to my hard drive, I was not.

    I have created a folder shortcut to Documents on my Explorer Tree (Quick Access), BUT I want to change the other two that point to OneDrive to C:\Users\.....\ Explorer1.jpg Explorer1.jpg Explorer1.jpg Explorer1.jpg Documents.

    I don't know how to do this and the Online Documentation I have read does not work for me.

    Can anyone help please

    Thanks

    you can change "target" via properties. right click on "documents" that points to onedrive and change its target.

    Hi IMDB

    Thanks for your help

    When I did as you suggested, and I tried it two ways 1) By Moving and 2) Restore Default, I got the error as shwn in the attached image.

    delete this one first and then give it a try, make sure you're logged in as an administrator.

    Hi IMDb

    Thanks so much for your help.

    1) "I have created a folder shortcut to Documents on my Explorer Tree (Quick Access),"
    delete this one first and then give it a try, make sure you're logged in as an administrator.

    Deleted it then retried Changing Target as per your previous post. No joy.

    2) I don't see the options that are mentioned when I following the instructions. Remember I don't now have One Drive installed, I am using a OneDrive task bar link that opens Chrome to the OneDrive webpage auto login. It is most frustrating!!

    Thank you again

    Terry
