In Windows 11 / 10 the libraries (Documents, Images, Music, Desktop, Videos, etc.), are by default in the root of the user's profile for administrative reasons but with daily work it is possible that as users we have decided to change the path of these to another place such as a different partition, an external disk, etc., we do this most of the time with the intention of saving space or improving administration..
We must always take into account where we change the new access routes, since on some occasions where they are configured by default they could give an error when trying to access them. But it is normal that on occasion we want to customize them if the ones that come by default are not comfortable. But if we want to return to the default values, the process is really simple and may be necessary for some Windows tasks, to restore these libraries TechnoWikis will teach you the process.
