SwahiliWizz,

I see what you mean. It appears that the Recent Items folder just will not work as a toolbar, and only as a shortcut.

I think the reason the "Recent" folder won't cascade is that the "folders" in it are NOT really in it; they're just shortcuts to other folders.

Hello!
I totally ruined my User-Folders and tried to fix them with this tutorial :Personal User Folder - Restore Missing Folder
I'm not using Vista but Win 8 however and first of all when entering the command into the elevated command prompt for My Pictures it tells me the file could not be found.
Second where do I enter the Shell Command in Win 8 when there is no Start Menu?
Would be really nice if someone could help me out.

Use :winkey: + R to open the Run Dialog.

For your other problem you would be better to open a new thread.

Ok, thanks. I even tried that before but apparently there is a problem with the folder My Pictures.
