  1. Question Reg Desktop Files in "This PC" , User and One Drive


    Windows 10, purchased Oct 2019.


    Are the Desktop folders/files listed in "This PC," "One Drive" andc:/user/myname suppose to be the same?


    I seem to be having issues with the Icon shortcuts I have selected appearing on my Desktop.

    When I look at the Desktop files listed in This PC, One Drive and my User Desktop Folder --- They are NOT the same.


    Which folder is the folder that controls the appearance of the Icons on my Desktop ????


    Thanks for your help

    JoAnne

    Question Reg Desktop Files in "This PC" , User and One Drive

    Need solution for automating transferring of files to flash drives

    I am wary of jumping straight in at the deep end so I have a couple of questions.

    1 How do you know which files to copy to which memory stick? Can you put a list for each one in a text file?
    2 Are you free to give each memory stick a specific label so that it can be detected in order to trigger the specific list that you have written for that memory stick?

    I do have a batch file procedure for identifying the drive letter currently being used for a given external drive label. So perhaps you could trigger a common batch file that
    Step 1 - checks each drive in turn to read its label and then find its current drive letter
    Step 2 - for each detected drive, look up the list given in the batch file to identify which [if any] text file to look in to find the files to copy to that memory stick.
    Step 3 - copies the files listed in the relevant text file
