Open the library folder in bottom left of taskbar to medium size not full screen.

I circled it in the picture in yellow.

Then look where I marked in yellow in the top left corner of my posted picture. That is where it should be.

Grab the file on the desktop and set it under Favorites- Downloads.

If your not familiar. Left click but hold down left mouse button move folder under Favorites Downloads and release mouse button.

If there is a short cut left on the desktop right click and delete it.

I did this on my PC on purpose to make sure it worked.

Post your results.

I don't know then.
I figured that was it.

You could try Sytem Restore. If problem started this afternoon pick a point this morning or yesterday evening before the problem.

That will put things back in their proper place and won't damage or delete anything.

Ever do a system restore?
If not use Method One.
