  1. Recent update has led to loss of network files on my desktop


    After the last update of Windows 10 the network folders have disappeared from my desktop. The folders exist on my laptop
    and I am able to access them there, but all I have on the laptop network is a default migrated folder. Any idea where the others may have gone?

    :)
