Windows 10 allows you to manage the location of user folders that are located in File Explorer. To be precise, in “This PC” and Quick Access sections. Here’s how to change the location of user folders in Windows 10 easiest way.

Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, and Windows 7 have this feature. You can do the same thing in those Windows versions.

Some people change the folder location simply because the location was the OneDrive folder. That may be confusing if you regularly use OneDrive as a separate folder to sync files manually. But the latest upgrades make the OneDrive as the default one, making it difficult to change.
