Windows 7: Desktop file location change

Desktop file location change

Hi, I was trying to change the location of my desktop file in my laptop but, accidently I selected a location in my user name folder ie C:\\user\. Because of this now my desktop shows all the files inside my user name folder and I can't fix it to show only the files in the desktop. Is there any way I can fix it??

I have tried to re-move that folder in to other location, but since that is a folder associated with my account (user name) the system won't let me do that. Please help !

Your best bet is a system restore to a point in time before you attempted the file location change.

If that doesn't work or you don't have any system restore points, this tutorial explains how to return user folders to their default location.

Are you sure that will fix the problem ? Because, I was also thinking of doing that but then thought that might fix the problem with software changes only?
