    Desktop icons don't work anymore after update of Windows 10

    I just did the windows 10 update to version 1703. OS build 15063.413 on my wife's PC,
    now when she clicks on previously working icons/shortcuts, a window comes up: windows can not find (name of url)
    I do not recall that happen when I did the upgrade on my PC..

    I forgot, even when I a make a new shortcut, the same thing happens.

    I ran the sfc/scan now, and it still did not work. Then I tried to create the new short cut from the urls in Google Chrome and now they work.
