First of all thank you for taking the time to read and answer these posts, y'all are great!
I started up Powershell today to try to troubleshoot and I noticed that it's starting out of the directory C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\$RECYCLE.BIN which does not look right to me, but I can't find what the default directory would look like. Does this mean it was somehow deleted? How would I go about restoring it? It uses this directory when I'm logged in remotely (which is usually) and when I tried logging in from the actual machine. Any thoughts?
