I have a Swedish version of Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit). In my user folder, that is, in
C:\Users\Andreas Rejbrand\, there are folders
Downloads, etc. However, in the UI, these are displayed as
Hämtade filer, etc.
Now, while doing research for a SO question, I managed (programmatically) to rename the
Desktop folder to
OS (C).lnk. To fix the folder (which always is empty in my case), I removed it, logged out, and logged in again. Then Windows recreated the folder. But, now it is called
Skrivbord (and not
Desktop, as before), and so some of my
bat files need to be changed. Actually, I would prefer the folder to be named
Desktop (but, of course, to be displayed as
Skrivbord), for a variety of reasons.
How can I accomplish this? I tried to use
cmd to rename
Desktop, but then I keep getting error messages from the shell all the time. I also tried to use Explorer to rename it, but then - of course - the displaed name changes, but not the real name (that is, the opposite of what I want). What can I do?
