or use another account? This may sound like a stupid thing to ask but it needs to be ruled out. Each account will have a different desktop customized by that user. You didn't say what you might have tried but the obvious thing would be to use the system restore function selecting a time when you knew the admin desktop was as you remember it to be.
I am using Dell laptop with Windows 7 Pro
Today when i logged into my laptop as administrator all my desktop folders and files gone.
only default folders like recycle bin are there.
when i searched through windows explorer i found out that system is not pointing to default desktop folder which is under,
c:\users\administrator\desktop (here all my folders and directories are present. Can see through windows explorer)
i found one administrator\desktop folder under my desktop folder which is strange. system is pointing to this desktop folder where only default desktop folder are available. Nothing else.
When i created new folder on my desktop it is showing under,
and not under
I had pinned outlook to the taskbar. thats also gone.
What can be the issue and how to fix it.
One more issue, I had setup MS outlook on my laptop but now if i open it, it takes me to setup wizard.
