    Default video folder under THis PC renamed to Music


    Hi peeps,

    The default folder under "This PC" decided to call itself Music folder after I accidently redirected the folder path to Music.
    And now it won't go back to original name 'Videos'. I have deleted the video registery key and recreated it as well. It come back with 'Music' name again.

    Is there a way to rename it back to video.
    Restoring registry keys for default folders didn't work.

    Any ideas?
    Regards

    Hello Parmi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Did you try restoring the default location of the Videos and Music folder?

    Thanks Brink. I am guessing you are refering to Registry Keys restoration which I mentioned I have done that already.

    In that case, a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened is the only other option I know of that should sort it.
