    Desktop Location


    I just replaced my hard drive and reinstalled W10 Fall Creators Edition. (I know that was overkill, I could have just restored a Macrium image but I am a machochist but I thought it time for a new clean install.)

    On the old disk my Desktop was under users/me/Desktop. The new installation has out on One Drive. What is the difference between the two?

    And, is there a way to move it from One Drive to users/me Desktop?

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Desktop Icon locations

    Use your mouse to make a selection and highlight all the icons, then drag and drop them to the location on screen.

    You can then use one of the suggested solutions by Windows MVP Rob.

  3. Desktop location is unavaible????

    I am not sure if this is going to work, but it seems like a legacy solution for the problem from a previous version of windows.

    Solution 1

    Additionally I am going to try a tool called "go back" to try to roll back the corrupt installation.

    Apparently you can access the file system by opening the recycle bin and navigate to any require windows settings required/file system access.

    Thank you, Brink.

    That would, I think, do the job for any new Desktop items. I will try it if I can find how to get to that window. (help please.)

    But how can I get all the Desktop stuff that is on Onedrive over to user/me/desktop?

    Thanks again.

    You're most welcome.

    You can copy or move it from your "%UserProfile%\OneDrive\Desktop" folder to your "%UserProfile%\Desktop" folder to do so.

    That seemed too easy but it worked just fine.

    Thanks again.
