c:\users\myname\Documents does not have a "Location" tab. How can I add it?
and c:\users\myname\videos is missing entirely, how can I create it?

 I was experimenting with moving the Documents folder and recycle bin to a network folder mapped as M:\.  When I disconnected the M: drive windows screwep Documents.
The missing \Videos folder is another story, but it is too time consuming to explain.

After running SFC and rebooting, Documents now has "Location" tab.
BTW, this SFC had a makeover. This is the first time I have needed it under Windows 10, and it seems to work more smoothly than in previous versions of windows.

Just disregard my comment.
 It has been 3 years since I last ran it and I can't remember any details about  whatever problems I had before, so you are probably right that on the surface nothing much has changed.  

thanks again.
