    Desktop folder missing in Command Prompt


    Hello Gurus Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.1110) I have just reinstalled Win 10 because I couldn't find the Desktop folder when using the Command Prompt, and its still missing. Has anybody any ideas how to fix this problem ?

    command prompt will not open in safe mode with command prompt

    Would I just follow the same steps within safe mode after hooking up to the other system?

    Installation media boots to command prompt

    I've just booted from known working install media to see exactly what it does when booting. The sequence of events is...

    1. Windows logo on a black screen
    2. circling dots appear beneath the logo
    3. light blue 'Please wait' screen with circling dots
    4. a command prompt window (very briefly)
    5. the initial Setup page appears

    Do you see steps 1-3? If so, it appears you have stopped at step 4, suggesting that something on the disc cannot be read.

    Does the disc boot properly in another machine? If so, try cleaning the laptop's drive lens then try booting from the disc again.

    If not, make new install media with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, either as a bootable USB, on an ISO that you can burn to another disc. At Step 8 in Option One of this tutorial you can choose between making a USB or an ISO.

    Download Windows 10 ISO File
     
  4. Desktop folder missing in Command Prompt

    Cannot create a new folder or file in the Documents folder using command prompt

    OK, we need to dig a little deeper. You might be dealing with illegal characters in a folder name. Let's try this:

    1. Open a Command Prompt.
    2. Type this command:

      md "%UerProfile%\Test"

      (does it work?)
    3. Type this command:
    4. dir /a "%UserProfile%" > "%UserProfile%\Desktop\Dir.txt"
    5. Open the desktop file Dir.txt.
    6. Paste its contents into your reply.
