Windows 7: Desktop Folder

Desktop Folder

Hi everyone

Wonder if anyone can solve this problem I am having. Somehow a folder called 'desktop' has appeared in the My Music folder. The desktop folder contained all the shortcuts and folder from my computer desktop screen. I deleted the folder but this simply deleted all my items on my desktop and i lost everything. When I rebooted the computer the folder appeared in My Music folder again but minus all the desktop items (just a few). So what happens is if I say add a new folder by right mousing on the desktop screen, the new folder appears in the Desktop folder in My Music folder. In other words the folder is acting as a sort of backup to my desktop. Hope this makes sense and wonder if anyone can explain what is going on and how to resolve it. Thanks

C:/windows/users/admin

admin may be your username so if your username is user then:

C:/windows/users/user

Hello Yozzer,

In addition, it looks like you will need to restore the default location of your Desktop folder.
