Hi,

I am wondering why, in this last windows 10 version, 1709, i can't put any document on the desktop like in previous windows versions?
Documents have been saved in the "normal" desktop map, not on the OneDrive and i can see them in the map finder but not on the desktop screen. Why?
This desktop map can't be pin to the quick menu, only the OneDrive Desktop, again, why?
i hope someone knows and can answer.

Hi Sandra77,

Welcome to the Forum.

You ought to be able to save documents to the Desktop, so perhaps the Security Permissions have altered.
  • Right-click on File Explorer folder on your Taskbar
  • In the context menu that show right-click on the Documents folder and select Properties
  • Select the Security tab
  • Left-click on System then click the Edit button
    • Ensure all items apart from Special permissions are checked below the Allow column
    • If you need to check any items then click Apply button
  • Next in the Group or usernames field left-click on your Username then click the Edit button
    • Again check that all items apart from Special Permissions is checked below the Allow column
    • If you need to check any items then click Apply button
  • Next, click the General tab and remove the Check next to Read only
  • Click Apply then click OK

Thanks, but except for the special permissions of the documents i couldn't reach anything with right-click. i guess it is working differently that what i was used to in the earlier windows versions.
