While all of your PC’s files, folders, and shortcuts are saved in a specific spot in your user profile, the latest Windows 10 edition saves them in two different locations. The first is saved in C:UsersPublicDesktop, while the second is saved in a separate folder under your current user profile -%userprofile%Desktop. On your Windows screen, you can see a single view of the contents of both of these folders as a Desktop.
