Windows 7: Music Folder W10

Music Folder W10

Hi,I have an issue with windows 10 music folder.I installed the W10 few days ago on to my HP laptop,Which was W7 home premium

When I rip some music from a CD with WMP the music goes into the Public music folder not into my music folder on the C drive.

Went into options in the WMP and tried to change the location of the music,But in the option box it stated ''Rip Music to this location''C:\user\public\music.
Now when I try to change that location to my music folder I get another box on screen stating ''The selected folder is not available.Verify that you have the correct permission to add files to this folder.

Does that make any sense to anyone??,And also how do I change the path to my music folder not the Public one.
Help Please.
Many Thanks.

Go to the public music folder and right-click on it. Choose "Properties" and from the "Location" tab, make sure to set the location to your personal music folder. Does that work?
