The fix i am taling about is Open Exolorer to the Desktop/mis-named folder.Shift_Right-click in the background & select Open PowerShell window here.Copy & paste the following command:ri desktop.ini -forceSign out & sign back in. Folder name should revert to true name. I am hoping somebody here knows what they're doing and can be of some assistance.
