    Two desktops. Want to remove one of them


    Hello. I have HUAWEI MateBook X. My problem is that I have TWO different desktops. So long story short, when I bought the laptop I had OneDrive installed on it. I thought that the 2nd desktop was connected to it in order to transfer files to the cloud because the path to that Dekstop was containing OneDrive in it. Anyway, I have uninstalled OneDrive and another program called OneDrive player I guess with the hope of removing that second desktop, but this still did not happen.

    I had Desktop folder in my Quick Access section and I had Desktop folder in my This PC section, both containing different files in it. The one that appears on my front screen is the on from the Quick Access one. I deleted the folder from there as well I still use it for my front screen. I will upload pictures of my current Desktop and the one that I want to use to see that it contains different files in it.

    Remove account


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