    This issue isn't there in Windows 8 but still after all these updates, exists in Windows 8.1

    You can try to replicate the issue yourself:

    As soon as you install Windows, where you do Windows updates or not, the bug is there which is:

    Go to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\ then try to cut the documents, music, videos, download folder, to a new folder in D: then paste them there

    that will work great, your libraries will get updated, and the folders will move to D: where you specified.

    now, try cutting/pasting the Pictures folder, and notice how the file transfer freezes, and the folder never gets moved.

    the only way to move it is by going to Computer, right clicking on the Pictures Folder there, then choosing location, then click on the MOVE button, then specify the target from there.

    You know that is not the correct way to move a library folder right?

    you mean by cutting/pasting? that's how I've always done it since the days of Vista

    how do you do it if I may ask?

    I did that for the Pictures folder after it failed to cut/paste but I never thought that was the actual right way to do it for all folders.

    That's probably why noone spotted this bug that I thought was a bug

    You should try that the next time with System32 folder :D. Would highly guess you'll discover a new bug, noone else ever will :cool2:.

    all these manipulation threads can be closed immediately because they are useless and only confuse members who think windows is a bug ... lol

    The biggest bug in Windows 8/8.1 is the OP - no offense meant - just keeping at least 1 foot in reality.
