Are you saying...that the file path changed by itself...while on the desktop?

If the desktop icon is a Shortcut, right click and you can see and edit the target, which will be flashing in blue. However, if this happened for no good reason, I would suspect malware so I suggest you run your anti-virus scan and any anti-malware utilities you have.
