Hi,

   I seem to have inadvertently altered the location of the "Start Menu" directory/library "Downloads" to C:\Users\Myname\Desktop, and I cannot find a way of restoring it back to "C:\Users\Myname"(myname being my computername).

   Does anyone know how to restore the said directory/library to its original location?

 I have found a workround to access contents of said ,Directory/Library,but it would be nice to be able to use the correct location.

      Thank You

            Rayal

Hi Rayal :)

If you go in the C:\Users\MyName folder, right-click on the Downloads and go to the Location tab, make sure the path is set to C:\Users\MyName\Downloads. If it's not, set it then click on the Apply button.
