  1. Cannot Delete PDF from Desktop


    I have tried the following:

    -Restarting my computer

    -Turning off the preview pane

    -Pressing shift+delete

    -Punching my screen

    -Snapping my fingers

    -Wiggling my nose

    -Putting tape on the screen to cover the file

    -Yelling at my computer

    -Closing my eyes

    -Calling my IT guy an idiot

    And I still cannot delete this freaking pdf file off of my desktop!


    What the hell?

  2. Best free PDF software?

    I use:
    • UnityPDF to merge/split PDFs and to insert/extract pages
    • doPDF to create PDFs from any program that is capable of printing
    • Foxit Reader to view PDFs and to type in them

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.

    does anyone have a simple solution when one tries to delete a document or PDF from the desktop and it suggest it cannot be found and to try again?

    often after a reboot, the file that you tried to delete will then be gone!
