    So Many Desktops


    I am looking at my monitor and seeing a desktop. What I don't understand are the relationships between the "top most level" desktop, vs <This PC> desktop and <users><me>desktop. Can someone please provide an explanation or point me to some doc that explains this?

    I do notice that anything in <users><me>desktop does not show anywhere.

    Any help appreciated.

    Anything in the 'C:\Users\<me>\Desktop' folder should appear on your desktop. The desktop on the screen is a composite of that personal desktop folder and the 'C:\Users\Public\Public Desktop' folder (which is where apps that are installed for 'all users' can put their shortcut icons).

    This pc is just a shortcut to the main uers folder and not another desktop.
