    Bug changed "Desktop" to "Pictures"?

    Attachment 31864

    Upon my first reboot after installing Win10 I noticed that my "Desktop" directory name had been changed to "Pictures", I already had a Pictures directory for, you guessed it, pictures not desktop items...

    1) Any idea how this might have happened (or is it a bug?) so I can avoid it happening again?

    2) How do I change it back to the appropriate "Desktop" name?

    NB If I hover over the icon in the quick launch area, it does say "show desktop" and does take me to the desktop when I click on it.
