yesterday i went to my registry into the folders until i reached common apps common data etc (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders)
i changed common desktops path and now i am stuck on welcome screen upon reboot [it's supposed to be %PUBLIC%\Desktop but now it's c:\\User\desktop
i tried safemode but it doesnt work
how can i edit or roll bak the registry? i dont want to install a new copy of windows since i have important documents

when i am stuck in the welcome screen if i hold onto the power button for 2 seconds or so i end up in a black screen with my mouse but i can't ctrl alt delete
i also tried last good known configuration and it seems to stay the same

OK I FIXED IT
I WENT TO SAFE MODE AND WAITED FOR 10 MINUTES AND THEN IT ACUTALLY WENT BACK TO THE DESKTOP AND I CHANGED THE PATH OF DESKTOP TO %PUBLIC%\DESKTOP
BUT THE REASON I CHANGED IT WAS BECAUSE I COULDNT ACCESS MY DESKTOP LOCATION FOR EXAMPLE WHEN I INSTALL A GAME IT WOULD SAY IT
