I have a problem in File Explorer(FE). All the folders with the exception of Desktop and Downloads, All show the correct location except these 2 folders. When I right click on Music or Videos folder in FE for example and go to location it has D:\ which is what I expect it to show. If I open the music folder or the video and right click on that file and go to properties it will  show the following location.D:\Music\the name of that file XXCCDD. Which is correct once again. The problem occurs when I right click on an item inside the the Desktop folder{in this case it is the EE-Security folder} and go to the general tab-then location what shows up is this D:\quickaccess\EE-Security. Which is not correct because the EE folder is located on my Desktop. Desktop therefor should be in location name instead of Quick Access. Similarly, When I right click on a folder in this case it is {Drug Info-CE Slides}inside the Downloads folder under general tab-the location states-D:\quick access once again instead of -D:\Downloads\Drug Info-CE Slides.
This has never been like this . I am not sure what has happened here? See screen capture. Please help me with correcting the location.
Thank you,
