The most recent Windows update in early May, on my Windows 10 desktop, seems to have hidden all my document folders & documents, photo folders & photos. Did that happen to anyone else? I had them all neatly categorized and filed where they belong according to the Windows file structure.

I did eventually find them and transferred them all to a USB drive but why would Windows do that to us? Microsoft and elsewhere online offer workarounds but why does the user have to do the work when MS created the problem? Now when I save an image or doc I have to remember to not save it in any of Windows-designated files like My Documents or My Pictures.

Who else has experienced this?

I opened the "My Computer' folder and looked in every sub-folder titled Documents and Pictures.

Under "My Computer" there is also a Folder titled "Everywhere" and when you open it you can get to what you want that way.

Also, in the list in My Computer look under "One Drive".

I batch-moved everything by right-clicking on the 'Send To' option to move them to my thumb drive.
