Vista: My 'Downloads' folder keeps getting redirected to my De


Recommended Posts


Really getting on my nerves now.

My 'Downloads' folder keeps appearing on my desktop :S

Can I redirect it back to under my profile folder, if yes, how?

I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit.

I've checked the environmental variables (sysdm.cpl), but was unable to notice any discrepancies to the default install.

Please tell me how to fix this!

Thanks in advance,

Just to clarify - "keeps appearing" means that you move it back to its original location, but it jumps right back to the Desktop?

Is there anything in it?

(I will not be able to help you, as I do not know Vista. But once the question is clear, someone else might.)
