    Hello

    My desktop files disappeared after windows 10 update. I also, lost my thunderbirds email account setting, as well as most of the shortcuts on the desktop. Fortunately I found my desktop files at the user count folder in drive C. I started over and setup my email on the thunderbired again and had some folders on the desktop. After having windows10 updated, something happened again, but this time i lost my desktop folders got deleted this time and thunderbird setting. I dont know whats wrong with windows10 update. Please help!!

    Note: I have kaspersky total security antivirus, I dont know if this causing any conflict with windows10. I used to have kaspersky for years and never had these problems.

    Files disappearing from desktop

    Saving files to my desktop causes them to disappear.

    My desktop is clear save for the Recycle Bin - and NO the file is not hiding behind it.

    File Viewer shows a file ON the desktop but it's nowhere to be found - viewport is completely blank.

    Any suggestions?
     
  3. Desktop Disappeared After Windows 10 Update

    After upgrading to windows 10, my desktop completely disappeared, sometimes it will flash for a micro second. The Desktop folder is still in my folder list and I can access it that way but prefer to have access to my desktop. I saw the other thread where
    it suggested a clean boot, but this did not work. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!
