Ast3risk-ops Doing so (for documents, or pictures, or any other default user account folders) simply says that such a folder already exists. You can create one on the desktop and drag it to the user folder, but it just merges and ALSO disappears as soon as you close and re-open the user folder.
It's being deliberately hidden for some reason, even though I have "show hidden folders" active.
All the other common fixes for missing user account folders have to do with their EXISTENCE within the account folder, not their visibility.
I can still access them on the pinned quick access list, but it's still EXTREMELY unnerving not to be able to use them like ordinary file folders.
Would REALLY appreciate a fix for this problem.
