    Multiple Desktop folders


    I have a situation similar to the person who posted this:
    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/com...58cb8b&m=1&p=1

    The thing is that when I delete the extra folders (and I have checked which
    ones seem to be the extra ones in the manner suggested in the post above) I
    still end up not being able to open the original Desktop, as "the folder xxx
    has been removed" or some such.
    The folders go down 7 levels (Computer>Music>Desktop>Desktop>Desktop>Desktop
    etc.) and are situated in the Music folder, for some stange reason.

    How do I get rid of this?

    In the Start Search box, type: 'regedit<enter>' to launch the Registry
    Editor.

    Navigate to:

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]

    and edit the path for 'Desktop' and whatever other folders are giving you
    problems.
