    Moving Desktop


    After signing up, the context menu shows up. But I'm still trying to make sure if I use the Move-Location option that my Desktop will appear with all its shortcuts and files. Will it?

    If your Desktop is currently set to auto-save to "OneDrive" in OneDrive settings, then changing it to "This PC only" will have it back to default.

    Moving Desktop


    Okay...So just to be sure...You're saying that the default location of the Desktop, when moved to the C Drive, through the location option, will be that folder in the C Drive ? And the show desktop shortcut (like on the right of the systray) will open up the desktop folder on the screen, that's now in the C Drive. Correct?

    Sorry to be so particular, but when I called Dell's Support and tried this last week, they ended up deleting all my desktop files! Fortunately I had them backed up, but it was a time consuming ordeal.
    Just Double Checking.

    Correct, the default location of the "Desktop" folder would be example: "C:\Users\Orealius\Desktop".

    To be safe, I would recommend to backup your current shortcuts on your desktop first. This way you could always just copy them back if needed.

    Did you verify your OneDrive settings to make sure "Desktop" is set to autosave to "This PC only" and not "OneDrive"?
