I am unable to edit the location of my desktop

Last Modified: 2019-11-27
Installed a new server and created new folder redirection to the new server. One user is unable to access desktop icons and files because the file path is incorrect. Have used gpupdate /force several time with no change. When you try to edit the file path in Explorer under Desktop/Location tab there are no options available to move or edit or anything. The Documents, Downloads and other folders all redirected as expected. This is a Windows 10 machine connected to a domain.
