    How can I move files from a folder to a specific spot on my desktop??


    I'm having trouble with moving files to my desktop. Whenever I open a folder, and want to move the contents to my desktop, I usually pick a specific spot to move it to so that it doesn't get mixed up with everything else on my desktop. The files I always have on my desktop are organized on the left side, with the right side empty I usually drag the files to the right side, since it's empty, and I expect them to move there, so they're separated from the left. But instead, they move directly to the left side, where they get jumbled up with everything on my desktop. I then have to look through

    :)

  2. Windows 10 search for a specific folder name and file name

    Carlos: Thanks for your reply. What you suggest is what I have been doing. I search for folders with a specific name and get a list. Then I have to search each folder for a specific file. So it's a two step search and that's what I was trying to avoid.

    I assume there are applications out there that allow for an "AND" search in Windows. I'll try that approach.

    Thanks, again.

    Why all my newly created files and folders Encrypted in Desktop?

    Every time I create a new folder or file and save it to my Desktop, a gold padlock icon appears on it. I tried the following steps but no use:

    1. Go to C:\Users\User_Name and select Desktop folder, right click on it, select properties, then go to Advanced, unchecked the option "Encrypt the option to secure data". Then it shows one error as

    "An error occurred trying to apply attributes to the file:

    C:\Users\User_name\Desktop

    The specific file could not be decrypted" .

    2. Open an administrator command line and run "cipher /u /n" to list all the EFS files.

    Then run "cipher /d "path to the file"" to decrypt all the EFS files.

    Any other suggestions ?

    Regards
