desktop icon right click, disaster.
the desktop icon (c:\users\userMe\Desktop) has a right click option to 'Move this folder'. i accidentally moved it to c:\, it should have been c:\newfolder\.

the c drive root folder now shows on the desktop with a few of those desktop supposed to be there icons, computer, network, recycle bin..

i havent browsed, or shut off my system, my original desktop icon-set path back, no clue clue how to reverse this.

a warning dialog with 'move files.., and, ..prevent having 2 desktop folders in the xyzabc folder..' I didnt move the files.

under system restore my c: drive is named '(dsktp-icon) Desktop (System)'. system restore could.. fail. (its like dang)

i looked at the desktop icon in 'quick launch',
Target type: Show desktop
Target location: Desktop
Target: (ghosted)Show desktop

am i turning it into rocket science, or do i actually need a scientist.

Re: desktop icon right click, disaster.
i did the system restore route. that is one messed up folder move, c: still had a few files, a c: dir and a c:dir\ from the \System32\ dos prompt would give me 2 different output. i rebooted them away, n its good. the post wasn't supposed to be in triplicate, sorry.
