Thank you for educating me.
When I had tried it earlier, I had tried it on the "Desktop" folder my User Profile folder (which I have redirected to "D:\Deskop"). The "Location" tab didn't appear. I found that I have to right-click the "current" desktop (or other) folder before that option appears. Unfortunately, that means that this method still wouldn't have worked because his "E:\Personal stuff" folder doesn't exist anymore, which eliminates the possibility of right-clicking -> Properties on the folders there to relocate them.

Right-click -> Properties on them in turn, and delete the two created in November. If you delete them to the Recycle Bin, it would be completely undoable.
While you are in that folder (UserPinned\TaskBar), try pressing [Alt]+[V], and enable the Status Bar. In the lower right-hand corner, what does it say? It should say "Computer", not "Internet".
This may be something to try
. Of course, you would replace the
ICACLS "%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
ICACLS "C:\Users\Joe\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar" /Setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)Medium
You can copy and paste the command above by dragging to select the text, pressing [Ctrl]+[C], switching to the Command window you opened, right-clicking within the black area and clicking "Paste". Then press [Enter] to execute the command.
Just so you know, I would not
follow any advice that you find on the Internet that mentions going to "Internet Options->Security->Custom->Launching applications and unsafe files->Enable", because that will disable the Security Warning dialog altogether, which will also make your computer not give any security warnings for executable files downloaded from the Internet.
