    Desktop folder disappear (C:\Users\Temp\Desktop) with all my material


    Hi, i need your helps

    After upgrade to windows 10 (from 8) I notice that my "active" desktop folder is C:\Users\Temp\Desktop –I restart my computer and now my desktop is C:\Users"myUser"\Desktop
    The problem is - that C:\Users\Temp\Desktop folder with all of my sub-folders completely gone.

    What can I do? Is those folders are hides anywhere?

    :)

    Private and User Desktop Switched Places

    While trying to unzip a file that was on my desktop, to a file on my desktop, all of my files and folders disappeared leaving just my applications and shortcuts. I went to C:/Users/Jgo/Desktop and all of my files and folders were there but not my applications
    and shortcuts. I went to C:/Users/Public/Public Desktop and saw just my applications and shortcuts. When I close/minimize all of my windows to see the desktop I don't see my files so Windows is now using my Public Desktop instead of the proper one. What happened
    and how do I fix this?

  3. Desktop shortcuts

    Shortcuts can "live" in two places:

    • In your own profile folder (C:\Users\Luke\Desktop). They are visible to you only.
    • In the public profile folder (C:\Users\Public\Desktop). They are visible to all users.
    You should now know why the deleted shortcut disappeared from both desktops.

    Deleting a shortcut does NOT delete the file or folder it refers to. I recommend you run some tests to confirm this.

    check your C:\Users folder, see if there's a user in there call Temp. If so, your folder should be in that user's desktop folder.

  6. Not sure you're looking in the right place. look for a user called "Temp", not a folder in your current user's directory.

    If so he's probably out of luck. Seems odd the system would delete it though.

    Did you backup before upgrading?

    It sounds like you may have been signed on as a temporary profile for some reason. Anything that you saved to the desktop in that case is lost when you log out of that account.

    If you mean things that were on the desktop before you upgraded then you could look in C:\Winodws.old as it sometimes stores some User directory things. Otherwise you'll have to restore them from backup.
