    Are you sure? You're last screenshot was of the Navigation Pane, showing the Desktop folder under This PC. My screenshot is of the droplist from the Address bar. Note that I clicked on the '>' to the left of This PC' in the Address bar, not the Navigation Pane.

    You haven't clicked anything yet. The Address bar still shows This PC. Post a screenshot of two explorer windows: one displaying just Desktop in the Address bar and one displaying This PC > Desktop:

    Where does Desktop below Quick Access come from? I don't have it on my system, never have nor do I see why I would.

    Desktop under Quick Access and Desktop under This PC are identical for me.

    Select the 'View' tab, then on the far left of the Ribbon, click 'Navigation Pane' and then check 'Show all folders':

    Look at the Address Bar in your screenshot. It reads 'This PC > Desktop', so you're still viewing the Desktop folder under This PC.

    Try clicking the 'up' arrow to the left of the Address Bar repeatedly until you get to the root Desktop:
