    Moving Download Folder creates two Desktop Folders!

    I have moved folders for years. I have moved download files to a new location for years. Suddenly this no longer works. When I followed instructions for moving the downloads folder I ended up with all the files on the desktop. And some versions of the folder tree, like libraries, report "downloads" as being desktop. So it's all screwed up as far as I'm concerned and nothing like the old days. Windows 7 Pro

    If you right click on Downloads in Windows Explorer and select Properties > Location, what does it show?
    Does the folder C:\Users\YOU\Downloads still exist?

    cheers, Paul

    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!
