  2. Public Desktop showing instead of user desktop when logged in (Windows 10)

    Upon login to Windows 10 using my username (the only one on the machine), it has now started bringing up the 'public' desktop instead of my 'user' desktop. I have no idea how to get my desktop folder to show back up as the desktop. I figured out that
    it was now displaying the contents of the public user folder because my anti-virus updated and put an icon/shortcut on the desktop. It was the only icon on this desktop. When I looked to see where the shortcut was located, it showed "C:\Users\Public\Desktop". Prior
    to this I thought maybe it was in tablet mode like the forums suggest. Not the case here. Any thoughts on how I can get MY desktop back instead of the public one?

    Why does the desktop show both User and Public items?

    I was cleaning up my Desktop in Windows explorer when i noticed that there were more items on my Desktop than that listed in windows explorer.

    I eventually found out that the content on my Desktop was a mixture of files from User Desktop AND Public Desktop.

    This was both unexpected and extremely frustrating

    I expected ONLY those files in the User Desktop to be found on the Desktop.

    I would like to know why the other files i found on the desktop were placed in the Public Desktop in Windows Explorer.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What are the contents of C:\Users\Public\Desktop\desktop.ini?

    "Public" folders content visibility for other users?


    Public folders are under C:\Users\Public.

    Some of their content I see reflected in my folders, other content not so. Specifically Public\Desktop shows on my Desktop.
