    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.

    Windows 8.1


    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 + 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.
