    In the past when I wanted to attach a photo to an email I would browse the desktop for the folder that I wanted. Now for some reason I cannot access the desktop. When I browse I get the download folder. On the area on the left of the download folder specifies document, drives and my external drive. How can I correct this?
    Thanks, mthumjdo

    Can you attach a screen shot of what you are getting when you are doing this?

    I have a copy of the window but can't get it posted because I do not have a url for the image.

    I can see the attachment but the message said you could see it.

    If you are asking about the left column, all you need to do, is click one the Computer, and then users, then your account name, and then the user desktop should be listed.

    This change is because you are using Libraries and the path has been changed to it.

    I did what you suggested (below) and I was able to get to the desktop. In the past when I went get an attachment a similar window came up but in the top address bar was Desktop or a folder with the attachment.

    If you are asking about the left column, all you need to do, is click one the Computer, and then users, then your account name, and then the user desktop should be listed.
