    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?

    my files from the desktop disappeared

    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 ?.
