    desktop folder within a desktop folder within a desktop folder


    Through transferring data from one computer to another, I've ended up with multiple desktop folders inside of the desktop folder inside of file explorer. Combining those folders seems to be a bit of a task and one drive seems complicate this issue.

    How to get rid of mysterious "Toshiba drivers" folder from my desktop?

    Good call, forgot about that. Public is the one you want. Default is only on user creation.

    Deleting a folder from the user's desktop deletes it from the public user's desktop.

  3. Desktop folder stuck with an "empty folder" icon

    That sounded like the solution but actually it didn't work at all.

    I solved in another way, and NOTHING else worked (I've been trying for weeks):

    1. Rename your desktop folder, something like "olddesktop";
    2. Create a new folder called "Desktop";
    3. Apply the Desktop icon stored in imageres.dll (the folder behind the desktop will appear automatically with the imageres.dll icon, the SHELL32.dll icon is just the desktop with no folder behind);
    4. Right-click the old folder and use the "Path" tab to move its content to the new folder;
    5. Delete the "olddesktop" folder;
    6. Refresh your user folder with the F5 key.
