Library folders missing and renamed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently on a new system with an SSD I moved the following folders location from c: to d: drive using the move command in the shortcut properties.

    Pictures, music, downloads and videos. I've done this in a few other system. On this one however the music folder received the video folders Icon  and the video icon is missing from the "This PC," list. Is there an easy way to fix this and get back the videos icon. Under library's everying if ok except the music folder shows the video icon and goes to music.

    TIA

    Carl, I found the solution on a windows 10 forum over the weekend. It's similar to yours less the registry hack. It is appreciated though. Thank you.
