Re: shortcuts

Nobody knows where they have gone. if you can't find them in the recycle bin, restore them from your backup or make them again.

Well if you created a new account you

can go to your OLD User profile under C:\Users\bla06603\Desktop. (This is using my account bla06603) and under the DESKTOP folder is where your desktop shortcuts are stored. You can copy the whole folder to the new account.
