Laptop

Windows 10 Home

 

Logged in with password and saw this for the first time:

 

"C:\WINDOWS\System32\Config\SystemProfile\Desktop  is unavailable".

 

On reboot there was no issue.

 

Was this just a glitch or an early warning?

 

Thanks.

a. Open "C:\users\[your user account]" folder. If you see two Desktop folders with one blank and the other with your Desktop items you need to delete the blank one.

 

b. Copy the desktop folder with your desktop items from “C:\Users\[your user account]\” folder to “C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\”

 

c. Restart the computer.
