Windows 10: Shortcuts and Libraries Solved

    Shortcuts and Libraries

    Hello everybody !

    1) I'm wondering if in Windows 10, it's possible to put a shortcut everywhere you want on your desktop.

    With Windows seven i like to put my shortcuts on my desktop, putting them in the right place depending on the wallpaper (that i change when my work is finished).
    Well, i explain : for instance the wallpaper is a pic with a table and a chair, i choose to put some shortcuts on the table, others on the floor and others on the chair, depending on my work !

    I know that there are virtual desktops, but if i can't organize my shortcuts as i like, it won't help me.

    2) Another thing is : do libraries exist ? If not, it's a real disaster, because i'm a bit messy, and libraries are a very handy tool.

    So, you've understood that shortcuts and libraries are very usefull for me, and how the shortcuts are used.

    But do that marvellous stuf exist in Windows 10 ?

    Thank tou very much for your reply ! :)

    Windows 10 handles those issues (shortcuts and Libraries) the same as Windows 7.
    Libraries must be selected as viewing them is not the default.
