This happened to me once before on my old computer and i don't know what I did to cause it then and still don't today. I have a new laptop and once again, things are in wrong places. ex: in the picture files are my downloaded files. In my download file there are only 5 items. If I try to put my downloads from my picture files into my download file, that file disappears off my desktop. i guess it doesn't make a lot of difference except when I have to find something it is going to prove quite difficult. My document file is also in my picture file and if I try to move that, I lose all my documents. I didn't have this on the new computer until a week or so ago. I have run all my malware and virus software, and have no issues. Just don't understand how and why that happens. I am the type of person that likes everything organized and this drives me nuts. I am afraid to do anything to fix it for fear i will lose stuff. I have yet to empty my recycle bin because I have had to go in there to retrieve some of this stuff. Thought I would add a picture as to what my files look like and if that is why documents and downloads are in the wrong places. Frustrating!!!
