Desktop Folder deleted under User

I accidently deleted my Desktop Folder on the left pane under my personal folder where Favorites, Libraries, Computer, etc are...my desktop shortcut is now under favorites but how do I get my Desktop shortcut back on the left pane with the rest of the folders (Favorites, Libraries, Computer, etc)? I noticed it also deleted my itunes library as well...

Hello CC268, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you already check in your Recycle Bin to see if you may be lucky to have these deleted items in it to be able to restore them from withing the Recycle Bin?

If they are not there, then you should be able to use the tutorial below to restore "Desktop" under Favorites in the navigation pane.


Favorites - Restore Default Favorite Links in Navigation Pane

Hope this helps,
Shawn
