Windows – Why can’t I find the C:\ProgramData\Desktop folder


My C:\programdata\desktop folder has apparently gone missing.

How do I reinstall it, without doing a complete recovery? My Recycle Bin is empty and I know I would not have deleted this file.

I think that's a hidden folder.
2 ways of making it visible:

  • Control Panel > Folder Options > View Tab > Select Show hidden folders.
  • Just type in c:\ProgramData\Desktop in the commandbar on top of explorer. This should show the contents of the folder.
