How to deal with the recycle bin on the desktop

Time:2019-10-20

Not long ago, after Xiaobian’s computer was powered on, only one Recycle Bin was displayed on the desktop, and the error prompt “C: \ windows \ system32 \ config \ systemprofile \ desktop is not available” appeared. Later, after Xiaobian’s research, it was found that the path configuration of the desktop was wrong, which was caused by the update of system patch, the uninstall of unconventional software and the instability of system test version.

Two solutions for computer displaying only recycle bin

Since it prompts us that the desktop of the directory C: \ windows \ system32 \ config \ systemprofile \ desktop is not available, we can solve this problem by copying the “desktop” folder into the sub file.

First, we need to find the “desktop” under our current user name before we can copy it. When there is only one recycle bin on the desktop, we can directly click the recycle bin to enter, and then click “this computer” → C disk “→” users “→” Wei “(the user name of Xiaobian computer is Wei), and then we can find the” desktop “file in the” Wei “file.

Then copy the “desktop” file we found, and paste it into disk C: Windows \ system32 \ config \ systemprofile file

After that, it’s time to shut down the computer and restart it.

The second way is to modify the registry. Press Ctrl + Alt + delete on the keyboard to open a page, select “task manager” and then click “task” → “run new task”, enter regedit and click OK after the page appears

Find HKEY ﹣ current ﹣ user \ software \ Microsoft \ windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ shell folders, find “desktop” on the right, right-click to modify it, and copy the key values. For example, if my is C: \ users \ Wei \ desktop, copy all of them.

After copying, find HKEY ﹣ current ﹣ user \ software \ Microsoft \ windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ usershellfolders. Similarly, there is a “desktop” on the right side. Then we right-click it – modify it, remove its key value, and change it to the same C: \ users \ Wei \ desktop as the above one. After that, restart the computer.
