    Desktop does not appear in Explorer


    W10-64 Home. 1909

    I found the same problem in an older thread which is solved, but either I am doing ot wrong or it is not working for me.Following those instructions, I now have:


    Desktop does not appear in Explorer [​IMG]



    Notice, no Desktop. In the folder Downloads are the desktop files. They are also in New folder. This is the result of following those instructions in the older thread. That thread/tutorial is located at:


    Restore Default Location of Personal Folders in Windows 10

    Recap:
    No Desktop in Explorer
    Desktop files seen in Downloads and New Folder

    Any help is greatly appreciated in advance.

    :)

  2. Internet Explorer Pop-Up invisible in Desktop

    Thank you for the update, David. For further troubleshooting, we would like to know if Internet Explorer appears in Task Manager even without starting Internet Explorer or it appears and remains in Task Manager after opening and closing Internet Explorer?

    If after opening Internet Explorer and it appears and remains in the Task Manager, we suggest opening Internet Explorer without add-ons and see if the issue persists. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • Right-click the Start button (lower-left corner) in Windows, and click
      Run.
    Alternatively, you can press the Windows logo key and the R key on your keyboard.

    • In the Run box, type iexplore.exe -extoff
      and press Enter.

    If doing the steps above eliminates the issue, then we suggest following this
    article
    for you to be able to manage/disable add-ons that's causing the issue in Internet Explorer 11. Managing
    other versions are also available at the bottom of the article.

    We will be waiting for your update.

    Cannot find Desktop Icon in File Explorer


    Now that is interesting. If I do what you suggest, File Explorer Address bar changes to C:\Users\username\documents and the missing ICONS are there. But there is still not a "Desktop" folder.

    Is this a step in the right direction?
