    Hi there,

    My first post and an issue that recently started and I can't seem to figure it out.

    When I do a save as file and I click on Desktop on the side bar it will save it to my desktop in System32/config/desktop instead of user/desktop. If I save a file instead of save as it will go to my normal desktop under user/desktop.

    Is there a setting somewhere to change the default desktop back to user?

    Could you add an attachment of what you click on when you save?

    I attached the screen print. The desktop that shows up is from the system32/config/desktop folder instead of user/desktop.
