    Hi, sorry, I can't quite understand what you're saying yet, so could you answer these questions please?

    This is clear: You have some shortcuts to office files on your desktop, but you have a problem with them.

    1. What happens when you double (left) click on them?
    2. What do you see if you right click, scroll down to properties- can you post a screen shot of important properties?
    3. Can you explain "but do appear when i go to files." please?
    4. What happened before the problem started, and were the shortcuts working previously?

    Look under C:\Users\Public\Desktop, see if they are there.
