  1. Deleted files keep coming back but Windows says they dont exist?


    When I find a funny meme or a video that I want to send a few people, I save it to the desktop and then eventually delete it. About an hour or so after I delete it, sometimes it reappears on the desktop again but with the "photos" and "films & tv" logos instead of the normal thumbnail. If I try to open them or delete them again it says the file cannot be located and the only way I can delete it for good is to open the recycle bin, restore it, delete it and then empty the recycle bin before it comes back.

    I thought my windows installation had gotten corrupted or something so I reinstalled windows and its still happening. It happens maybe 50% of the time and seems to only happen with videos or images. Does anyone know wtf is going on?

    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 ?.

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
