My Documents Folder - Location

Hi All,
I somehow moved the "My Documents" folder into the "Downloads" folder. Is there some way to move it back to where it belongs? The "Public Documents" folder still shows in the Documents dropdown.
Thanks,
Jim

Public Documents is independent of documents. How did you move them? Drag and dropped?

User Folders - Restore Default Location - restoring to default

User Folders - Change Default Location - proper method of changing

Thanks - I will try these methods.
I don't know how it got moved, maybe I dragged and dropped by mistake? I don't know.
I tried system restore but no restore points go back far enough.

GokAy thanks,
The second option in the first link did the trick - downloading the correct .bat file and running it. Worked like a charm!
