Hello,
I'm not sure that many call it the "file manager," yet I'll use this name.  It used to be this name with windows 7.
When I get into the file manager, to manage my files I start getting a duplication of my documents folder.  
What is causing this and how can I stop it from doing this?
one document too many

My windows 10 does the same thing. By any chance are you using OneDrive or Dropbox or Crashplan? I am trying to narrow down the cause.

EC I have OneDrive, but I avoid using it.  If I don't get an answer here, I'll have to go searching the internet.

Eric, i'll try this tonight at home, but this thought came to mind.  What I have done is pin the file manager to my taskbar.  Maybe this is the cause.  May I ask whether you have it pinned?

I have seen this and only on those who have redirected their libraries (like documents). No solution, yet.

Last night I removed my pinned file folder from my taskbar, and while I did not work within the file manager that much, I believe it will be re-appear.  I now access my file through the window app selection.
I'll let you know what I find.

Hello, I probably should give these points to myself.  When I discontinued the file manager from being pinned to the task bar, the problem got fixed.

Hm, it's pinned by default and so many people don't have this problem. I'll have a look at a workstation that had this after my vacation and see if that works .
