I use Win 10 and and :mad::mad:for some reason an empty folder called "camera roll" appears on my desktop out of no where.  
I delete it and as soon as I start working again all of a sudden it reappears.  I have no idea what it is or what triggers it to reappear. It doesn't seem to do any harm except it drives me nuts.  Easy to do.
Can anyone help?  I sure would like to solve the mystery.

Well that folder is only created by third party software that is running you should disconnect all attach devices and delete the folder to find out issue resolves. If the issue is not resolve then perform a Clean Boot state to eliminate third party startup programs and services.

Back in September 2014, there was a free camera roll bonus offer for OneDrive.  If you took advantage of the offer at that time, you will have a folder name Camera Roll on your computer.  Mines is in my Pictures folder.  I don't know why yours is on the desktop.
