I'm sure I've edited this before but I've searched around for answers and I can't seem to find what the file was. (ex to change the location of the pictures link under the places menu to somewhere other than home/pictures)


The file you are looking for is ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs in your home directory.

You can modify the entry by changing XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Picture" to XDG_PICTURES_DIR="/<your_pictures_directory>".

The same thing goes for any other such directory.
