    You have a dual boot or old share is my guess... just open the folder to take control or if it's an app, run it as admin

    I finally got it ! thanks for the help ussnorway. I was being forced when I clicked "print Screen" to save to another folder. After going to the folder and walking my way through it I clicked the right buttons and now it's back to the folder I want ( documents)

    fyi it's not a good idea to move the default pics folder off the c drive- user location... ime you are much safer to leave your screens there and just point to them with a shortcut from where-ever you put the main pics

    it's your system but Windows can get a little weird if you [re]move too many default locations
