Hello, I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and have had this issue on both 8 and 8.1. I have a directory named Downloads which I put into the Windows Explorer favorites list. This link though will randomly get changed back to the default Downloads virtual directory, the one with the blue arrow pointing down. How do I get this to stop automatically and randomly resetting to default? I don't use the virtual Downloads directory for anything and don't want to start using it either. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
