    This puzzles me: Look the icons in OP's screenshot in post #5, the "This PC" is there but for somehow it's renamed to "Mohamed Elshimy" although the symbol seen clearly shows that the selection is the "This PC".

    Then again, I cannot even reproduce situation as in screenshot in the original post; the title of that page should show the current location, not the username, which again suggests that for somehow the "This PC" has been renamed.

    A registry hack gone wrong?

    The video confirms what I suspected, you have renamed "This PC".

    I have no idea. I thought first the issue could be that Facebook app does not like it, it's looking for "This PC" and when not found it does not know what it should be showing. However, when I tested it (renamed "This PC", tested Facebook and other Store Apps), no app had issues in browsing the folders.

    Hi Zaref,

    the problem is caused by Autodesk360. I had the same problem. Just uninstalled it and then everything will be back to normal. If someone managed to have it installed without having issues like you please let us know.

    BR,

    Yes, only Autodesk 360. AutoCAD will work normally without Autodesk 360. But if you are using Autodesk 360 you must find another solution. I personally do not use it so I just uninstalled it and everything is OK after that.
