My question:
How do I set it up so when I open the file manager (Dolphin is my case) and click on Documents in the Home folder it takes me to the Documents folder I created with Windows on the sdc device?
--------------------------------------------

Here are my storage devices as listed with lsblk command:

HDD for extra data storage and backup
sda 8:0 0 298.1G 0 disk
└─sda1 8:1 0 298.1G 0 part

SSD with Kubuntu OS and Linux programs
sdb 8:16 0 223.6G 0 disk
├─sdb1 8:17 0 1M 0 part
├─sdb2 8:18 0 513M 0 part /boot/efi
└─sdb3 8:19 0 223.1G 0 part /

HDD for data
sdc 8:32 0 698.6G 0 disk
├─sdc2 8:34 0 1K 0 part
└─sdc5 8:37 0 698.6G 0 part /dev/media

SSD with Windows OS and Windows programs
sdd 8:48 0 223.6G 0 disk
├─sdd1 8:49 0 100M 0 part
├─sdd2 8:50 0 222.2G 0 part
├─sdd3 8:51 0 851M 0 part
└─sdd4 8:52 0 451M 0 part

I select the OS from the boot menu by pressing F12.

Try this:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc5 /mnt
rm -rf /home/<username>/Documents# this command will remove Documents folder
ln -s /mnt/<Path to your windows directory> /home/<username>/Documents
