Can only view my public desktop
I went on a weekend trip and turned on my laptop in an airport and noticed that I lost some of my desktop icons. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I returned home and discovered that I was using my Public Desktop. I can not figure out how to get back using my admin desktop. When I search my user accounts I find that I have "Default", "Public" and "Ron" this is my admin account. That account now has two desktop folders in it, one folder has all of my previous files and folders and the other just has one file in it that I made while I was gone.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I know that I can just copy and paste my old icons into the new folder but I would like to know the reason, if there is one!!
