  1. I deleted a file, now my whole laptop is useless.


    So, I have a ASUS computer running windows 10. I was deleting some files to free up space and I can across a file called 'user', didnt think too much so I decided to delete it. After I deleted it, every, and when I say every, I mean EVERY single program of my computer was gone

    Everything doesn't respond and work. Even apps owned by Microsoft; 'Microsoft edge', 'file explorer', I can't even access the recycle bin icon thing. Even the wifi icon doesnt respond the windows logo on the bottom left that brings you to the start panel thing doesn't respond so I cant even turn off my computer. Not a single thing responds and every program is gone. I need help, I dont have a system restore point backup thing so I think my laptop may be useless now but I just need help.

    :)

    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.
