    Pop up window asking to send files to recycle bin?

    I am hoping someone has any ideas on this weird problem. I just upgraded to 10 from 7 yesterday on a Toshiba sattelite 64 bit.
    Everything went perfect. About 30 mnutes after I noticed a popup window stating “confirm you want to send pictures folder to recycle Bin? I did not touch anything and it just popped up on its own. when I tried to press cancel it just popped up again.
    It wants to send desktop items to recycle bin??
    I have no clue…and why would it be if it is a brand new install of 10. I have never seen this behavior before. The only way I could close the window was to restart the computer.

    I would appreciate any insight! Thank you

    Never had this happen to me but I agree it's a bit disconcerting, almost as if someone else has control of your laptop. Are you networked with other computers? Could you ascertain exactly which Pictures folder it was talking about? There are multiple folders now for pictures and with the new Photo App there are picture folders that get automatically created. In addition if you login with a Microsoft account and have OneDrive you will also have a pictures folder there.

    It might be possible that you were setting up some of these new apps and it was W10 making some changes that were delayed due to all the other things going on with a new upgrade sorting out all its settings and folders.

    Now that you have restarted has it happened again?
