Wrong "Documents" label if "Documents" folder is on a network share


Recommended Posts


Maybe I found a bug. It's my first with StartIsBack, definitely not bad for a software I use since 2013 :thumbup

If I redirect my "Documents" folder on a network mapped drive, instead of "Documents" I see the drive letter in the start menu.

This doesn't happen with the standard start menu.

How to reproduce:

1) Create a network share somewhere on a remote location (ex. "\\192.168\1.11\mydocs").

2) Map the network share on a drive letter (P: -> "\\192.168\1.11\mydocs").

3) Change the user "Documents" folder location to "P:\" (without quotes).

4) Tell Windows not to move documents to the new location.

5) Reboot PC.

Now on start menu you should see "P:\" instead of "Documents".

I attach a screenshot.


Thank you
