Closing opened folder when physically deleted on desktop


when i have a folder opened that points to a folder present on my desktop,
and i physically delete the folder on the desktop, the folder's window remains
opened & goes back to the desktop folder address.


C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\New folder
opened on the deskbar & vm

C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\New folder
deleted on the desktop .. .

appears as a folder on my deskbar

Wanted behavior as in previous windows versions:
C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\New folder
should disappear from the deskbar & vm, too.
