  1. Windows update changed the original Desktop location


    Hello there!


    I was working in my laptop and had to restart it. When it was rebooting, it seemed it needed some updates. However, by the time it finished updating (lasted about 3 hours), seemed like a recovery action(which wasn't), as all the files I had did disappear. Nevertheless, I kept looking for the files and found them in another folder. The original Desktop was in C:\Users\Félix\Desktop, and after the update it was moved to C:\Users\TEMP.LAPTOP-NCA0N9NL.000\Desktop\. Any ideas? How could I solve this?


    Thanks in advance!


    Félix

    :)
