I am trying move the location of my laptop's
Desktop folder from one location to another.
I had forgotten how to do this, so instead of changing the location via the Location tab in Properties I moved the files to a new location, then deleted the Desktop directory and created a new one. Then I realized I had done it wrong.
There's no option to change my new "Desktop" folder into a proper special Desktop folder so that the files show up on the desktop and treated like the desktop folder is supposed to. I think what I need to do is find a way to restore the canonical Desktop folder in explorer?
