    Can you access the folders when your not using the shortcuts?

    No, only when I create a shortcut off any of those folders...

    See here. Common problem - if you open a folder with any application, the dialog that comes up has a checkbox to make that application the default folder handler, and it's checked by default for some reason.
    I know I shouldn't use tildes for decoration, but they always make me feel at home~

    open a terminal and run this:
    Code:
    ls -la
    It will show who has permissions for those folders, maybe not you anymore.
    Copy and paste here and will give you instructions include your user name line:
    such as:
    Code:
    rick@rick-HP:~$ ls -la
