  2. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.

  3. Several issues; icons gone, settings defaulted, quick access unavailable

    Hi,

    To help with you resolve the error upon starting up, we suggest that you perform the following steps:

    • Open This PC, then go to C:\Users\[your user account] folder.
    • Check if there are two Desktop folders. If so, delete the Desktop folder that contains no files.
    • Copy the Desktop folder that has files and paste it to
      C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\ folder.

    Update us on the result.

    Regards.

    Windows 10 Desktop - Folders Gone

    Hello!

    I am now aware that after the initial update that Windows places you into a new default account. Initially, I was surprised that my desktop was gone. I found all of my Folders through the File Explorer and decided to move them to the new desktop.

    After restarting the computer I can only use my original account. My folders are gone permanently now, correct?
