    If I put a file (picture, song, video, etc), on my Desktop where shortcuts would usually go, where is the file actually stored? Is it stored in the Desktop file? Or is there another place it actually resides?

    I'm going through a file recovery problem, a want to know where to have my program look so I'm not waiting for 24 hours for my files.

    The default is C:\Users\Username\Desktop
    If you haven't changed the location that is.
