Thanks for even looking at my post
Let's focus on drive F first.

Did you mess around with permissions on C manually?

I never ever touch C Drive - if I have it may have been when I was trying to fix this issue. I have been told this is the worst this to happen. I do not want too have fragments left on my desktop. I think it may just be sharing.

I have posted the cmd as you requested - I said yes to the command - I gather that this is a code like what is on some on the sites that can assist you.

My drive has a lot of information on it

After I have typed Y - can I close CMD?

Patience is a virtue that I must learn

Was a lot of information on the drive

came up with dir f complete

I hope that my screen snip is sufficient and I appreciate your assistance - one thing at a time

Do this as well in elecated command prompt:
Code:
 
icacls  F:\  /reset  /T  /C /Q
rd /s /q  F:\$recycle.bin
first command resets all permissions... like you just created the file and didn't change it afterwards.
Second command delete recycle bin of all users on F.

Both commands succeeded?

Check afterwards if F still has permissions as in #15

F is fine now? You can create files/folders? Delete stuff?

To solve the desktop issue: (also elevated command prompt)

Code:
cd  %userprofile%
You see C:\users\<your name> now.

Code:
 
icacls  Contacts /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Desktop /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Documents /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Downloads /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Favorites /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Links /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Music /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Pictures /reset  /T  /C
icacls  "Saved Games" /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Searches /reset  /T  /C
icacls  Videos /reset  /T  /C
icacls  appdata /reset  /T  /C
Any problems with desktop? You can create files/folders on desktop? Delete stuff on desktop?

my goodness gracious -- you are a genius
I should have read the first command correctly

I should have run the command separately as you explained

I also should notify you that I did do a few tests to and from the drive with success

You are a very good teacher

I disliked having a lot of items on my desktop

I think you are amazing

I think that the message on the end of the message on the F drive - which I am afraid to close the CMD means that perhaps everything is alright.

I am unsure of what to do now.

I am sorry - I became very ill and it took a long time for this process to do.

Thanks again.

I did however not read in the article that you type exit at the end of everything - something I remember from days of old
