    I don't know how I did this but I have my user profile showing up under my
    user profile when looking at it in the explorer, but it isn't showing up in
    the file system like that. How do I get rid of this extra profile folder
    that keeps showing up in my home folder when I open up my home folder from
    the start menu? Remember it is only when looking at it in the home folder
    in windows, not when you go to the file system and go to your profile

    I also moved my contacts folder back to my profile but I accidentally moved
    it to the same location as my profile and I don't have a contacts folder
    anymore and don't know how to make another one. I keep getting new contacts
    in my C:\Users\<Profile> directory too. How do I tell the system where my
    contacts folder is by assigning it another folder and getting the icon back
    as well?

    This is a highly complex system and it can be easily messed up if you have
    any IT experience.

    From yopur description, it's not real clear what you are seeing?

    When you open Windows Explorer, you should see your user profile folder at
    the top of the Navigation Pane on the left side of the window. This same
    folder also exists in the C:\Users\your username. These are not duplicate
    folders. The folders at the top of the navigation pane are simply a mirror
    copy of the actual folders that exist at C:\Users\your username. They are
    mirrored there for convenience.

    If you want the user folder at the top of the navigation pane to show the
    same folders that you see in the C:\Users location, you need to go to
    Organize/Folder and Search Options/View Tab. Select the Show Hidden Files
    and Folders option there.

    they both are deleted. How do I correct so only one is deleted

    Could you give us some more details?

    What folders or sections are these pictures in?
    Do they have the same, exact name?
