Very silly queston but... how to delete hard-drive icons from User folder?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was moving My Pictures and such from my SSD to my HDD by using the Location > Move option. I thought simply having the path as F:\ would do it, but nope. Not only did they not transfer, it added my hard drive to the Users folder. Did this twice before realizing. Now I can't delete the icons. They're just... there. More paths to my HDD, as if clicking from My Computer.

Honestly, it's just a matter of my (self-diagnosed) OCD. Didn't really have anything important in those folders since this computer is relatively new. I just want to keep things tidy. Closest I can do is sorting by group and collapsing the Local Disk tab, but I could delete them, that'd be awesome!

Hello, on your library, you can set where "my pictrues" and all those files load archives from. biggrin.gif

So you can go to my pictrues and it will go the archive or files that you set as default.

Go to your library, Right click "My pictures" And then change the default open folder to the new one. smile.gif

It works for all the other folders inside my library. I hope I made my self clear wink.gif

Screen shot me please, I'm not sure I follow. Did you add another library by chance (if you did right click>properties and remove the all the locations that shouldn't be there)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Right Click on the library, and remove the ones you want. I did what you did in a mock setup. Screenshot above.

And cheers age ruler lol!
