Accidentally changed Downloads folder to D:/ and I moved it back to C:/ but D:/ still acts as a download folder

So I accidentally changed the downloads folder to my hdd(D:/) so I moved it back to C:/, now the HDD acts like a hard drive. pic: https://prnt.sc/qwbf4o

HDD is short for Hard Disk Drive.

That pic doesn't show much information. We will need to see what your navigation pane to the left looks like. Also, how did you change the drive locations?

With Win 8.1 and 10, if you simply select the D drive root as the target location for one of the Libraries...yes, this is what happens.
You needed to first create a folder, and use that as the new Download location.

Fixing this involves delving into the Registry.

Next time, just change that location in the browser settings.
For instance, in Firefox:
