  1. I want to remove the User's Folder from the Desktop for ALL Windows 10 users


    I want to remove the User's Folder from the Desktop for ALL Windows 10 users


    I have seen Registry entries that supposedly do this, but they seem to take effect for only the logged in user.


    Under Windows 7, these registry changes took affect for all users, but under Windows 10, they do not seem to take affect for all users.


    How can I remove he User's Folder from the Desktop for ALL Windows 10 users ???


    There are group policy items to remove This PC, Recycle Bin, and Network, but not the User's Folder.


    Please help.


    Thanks

    :)

  2. Removing a "hidden" user and user files

    Thanks for your patience. I was able with "Net User" to remove the left over user. It no longer appears when I invoke Net User.

    Now for the user's folder which remains behind. After performing the series of steps that you suggested, I attempted to delete this folder. The result again was an error message about permission

    "Administrators" appears on the list in the list of advanced security.

  3. Setting New Location Of User Folder to another User Folder

    Hi Renee,

    Having an easy access to the Desktop folder can give you a convenience on opening your files. Regarding your concern about the Desktop folder that was moved to the Downloads section, we recommend that you create a new local user or administrator account to
    resolve the issue.

    To create a local user or administrator account, follow the steps listed on this
    link
    .

    In addition, to move your files from the Downloads folder back to the Desktop folder, we suggest that you manually copy and paste the files to avoid any data loss.

    Feel free to post back if you need more help.

    • Then select Properties.

    • Click Restore Default.
    • Then click Apply to save the changes.
