    Creating one shortcut at desktop, an extra file show up


    Hi!

    When I create/copy a file to my desktop, a 2nd copy shows up...

    Location for the files is:
    Z:\Users\Public\Desktop
    Z:\Users\Y\Desktop

    ... any tips how to fix this? So only one file appears...?

    Drive Z is created during an install. Do a restart (reboot) and it will disappear.

    Didn't work, unfortunately.
    Here is some pictures of the folder I created that gets an almost identical copy.
    The original file I created is at the 1st picture. The weird thing is that when I check properties -> location, it's different from the address bar when I've open the folder.
    But the at the copy(gets exactly the same name) that pops up (2nd picture) properties -> location and address bar "location" matches.
