So I am trying to figure out how/why this is the way it is. I have a user that has their desktop as a folder (quicklaunch style) on their taskbar. There are no desktop icons on the actual desktop and any new icons created by installing a program or dragging and dropping to the desktop are moved to this idiotic location on the taskbar.

I have checked the registry and Shell folders appear correct.

I have a feeling that a previous user has used something similar to Tweak UI and changed this and now it has me scratching my head. Any suggestions on restoring this desktop?

it was creating a toolbar of the desktop folder.
