    Moving desktop from different user account


    I have 2 user accounts with the DESKTOP folder listed. Either one opens the desktop files and sub-folders. I'd like to move the default location of DESKTOP from one user account to another without creating any redundancies, deletions or problems. Can this be done?

    *Cool*Cool

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    • Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    • Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code: net user test /del[/quote]

    Different desktop for different users

    Hi Michael

    Different Desktops as well as all of the other personal folders has always been the default setup in Windows.

    These are automatically set up when a new User Account is created.

    Create a local user account in Windows 10:

    Moving desktop from different user account

    Desktop shows different shortcuts than Windows explorer desktop

    Hello Glyn,

    We regret for the inconvenience.

    At this point, I suggest you to check if the same issue occur when logged in through a different Local Administrator user account. This will help us ascertain if the issue is user account specific.



    Follow the steps mentioned below:

    • Assuming that you are already logged on to your user account in Windows 10, click the Start button.
    • From the Start menu, click your name from the top of the left pane.
    • From the displayed options click Sign out.
    • From the login screen, click to the different user account you want to switch to.


    However, if you do not have a separate user account, I suggest you to create another administrator user account by referring to the Microsoft article here: Set
    up accounts
    .

    Write to us with the updated status and the required information for us to be able to assist you further.

    Thank you.
