Win 7 - what is the point of C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\desktop ?
Posted on 2015-01-27
On an sbs 2011 standard network, if that matters, a user was frantic about a file they said they saved to the 'desktop' but didn't see it. wound up going into the app they saved the file from and it shows recent files. the file was there in this desktop folder.
There was another doc in there also, but neither showed when looking at their desktop of the win 7 machine.
Does anyone know what that folder is for / when you would see things that go in there, etc?
Even in windows explorer, clicking on the desktop folder on the left, these files weren't listed.
