Is there any way where when I click Pictures, Videos, Documents, it points me straight to the folders I created in the HDD?

Right now, when i play on documents, it opens up the documents in the SSD. I want to point it to the documents folder i created in the SSD.

Is there any way of doing this?

Right click the folder, choose properties, and click "include a folder." Add whichever folder you've moved it to on the HDD. Now, the shortcut will show you the contents of the HDD and SSD for the designated folders.

I navigated to my "my documents" folder and then right clicked on it, chose "properties" and clicked the Location tab...

That gives me this option:

You could change that to any location you want.

Cool nice, i never realised that after making the changes the path to the folder stays the same on the address bar. I thought it actually makes copies. I tested with a picture, it appeared in both "This PC>Pictures" and in my D Drive>Pictures.

I thought it made duplications but then i deleted the picture in D drive and the picture in ThisPC also disappeard.

Not bad, but can be a bit confusing.
