Hello,

When going to File explorer:

Might someone please explain to me the differences between:

Windows (C:) and the Folder Desktop that appears there,

and the Desktop (icon ?) that appears right below "This pc"

They seem to show different items.
Never noticed this before, and realize I don't understand the differences.

Thanks,
Bob

Any chance you could post a screenshot please bob - as I'm a little puzzled as to why they would show different things if it's the same location.

I get two "desktop" links - one is under "quick access" and the other is under "this PC". They are both the shortcuts to the same location and show the same files.

It is interesting, I get 3 Desktops in the left/navigation column in File Explorer plus can get another on the right-click of the Taskbar then click Toolbars then Desktop to have it show on the Taskbar. And these don't count the one in C:\Users\USERNAME. I haven't checked if they all contain the same things.

There should be three.

1. Under Quick Access
2. Under This PC
3. Under Frequent Folders

They all go to same location.
