I found a similar question asked on this forum, but it does not seem to apply to my situtation [Link ].

When I save to the desktop it does not show up on the desktop even though I clearly chose the desktop folder.

It says I saved to the desktop, but it is not on the desktop and I cannot find what I saved when I search for it. This is something relatively new. I already have icons on the desktop that I saved before, but now anything new I save does not show up.

I am running a Windows Vista. I appreciate your help.
