Question ESO cannot find installed add ons

I installed minion and set it up and everything was fine it was able to locate the game folder but it never asked me to sign in or anything. I browsed some add ons and installed them and that was fine and then I started up ESO and on the main menu clicked add ons to add them and nothing came up

Did you search the forum? There are plenty of threads abotu the same problem-
e.g. Do you use Onedrive? Remove the elder scrolls online folder from OneDrive.

I am not using OneDrive. I searched through the forum just browsing but i didn't see any titles that sounded like my problem. the ones that seemed similar were some that had problems with minion itself detecting ESO folder or detecting add-ons, not problems with ESO detecting already installed add-ons.

I figured out the problem was the folder that minion auto chose for ESO to install the add-ons to was the wrong folder. It auto detected a program(x86) folder for eso under steam, not the C:Users/(user)/documents/ElderScrollsOnline/live/Addons folder.. i did not know what folder to change it to but then I found this documents folder and it is working now

Ah ok, you should have mentioned you are usng the Steam verison
It's a common issue.

The folder where the addons are normally stored should be somehwere
in c:\users\your windows user name\documents\The Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns

Depending on your drive for the user and documents data, as you could have moved it to d: or e: etc.
