  1. However, the folder is hidden by default…doesn’t show the public desktop folder by default…..you must show the hidden files and folders.

  2. You don’t need to show hidden files/folders — you can just type the path in a Run prompt or the address bar of Windows Explorer, and it will take you to the hidden folder.

  3. I am win 10 with 11 multi users and place shortcuts on all users as I decide

  4. Worth noting this only applies to existing users, not newly created accounts. Use %systemdrive%\users\default\desktop
