I found this quite useful, i just want to know where this is located lol besides desktop.... like I already know where the libraries folder is: c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries\

Hello Mikey,

The "Desktop" folder under Favorites is a shell folder that doesn't have a folder location.

You can open it's location using the shell command below in Run, search, shortcut, etc.....

shell:desktop

Hope this helps,
Shawn
