New laptop...Win 10 has 2 drives... SSD drive (C:) and a SATA drive(E)...
I want to change the locations of Desktop, Favorites, Documents, Music, Pictures etc to the SATA drive...
For more storage space...

Settings > System > Storage only has Apps, Documents, Music, Photos, Videos available to move...

In User Profile > Documents, Downloads, Music have the Location tab and I have correctly pointed these 3 to E:\...

But Desktop, Favorites does NOT have a Location tab...

Was this overlooked by Msoft...???...is there a fix...???...Regedit maybe...???

I have way too much stuff to put everything on the C:\ drive...

Any and all suggestions appreciated...

Patience is a virtue. The settings you are looking for will be available in a future release.

If you absolutely have to have these settings before the changes are released to the general public, become a Windows Insider, put yourself in the Fast Ring.
After a short period, you will be offered Windows 10 Insider Preview Version 1607 (OS Build 15046.0) and you will find the settings you need.
