Today after restarting my computer I see this:

word files appear beside map network drives in my computer

This is my full screen snap shot. How is it that files can appear besides mapped network drives in Network Location?

How has this happened? Can I fix it? How to fix it? How can I add other files here?

My windows is Windows 8 and my computer is joined to a domain.

Right click on them, properties, and try to see where they originated. –  ekaj Feb 4 '13 at 5:50
    
Rather, these files are on the desktop. –  STTR Feb 4 '13 at 6:37

Right click on them, properties, and try to see where they originated.

I found that they are here

C:\Users\"USER_NAME"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts
