I was using the program Lightroom and I tried to rename the Desktop folder to DESKTOP but when I clicked enter, it said "This folder can not be changed." I clicked "ok" and then all the files in my Desktop were gone.

Where did all these files go? Are they gone?

  • open terminal and see if you can see the folderDesktop in your home directory, then go into that folder and see if the files are there. – Solar Mike Oct 12 '17 at 17:14
  • The folder Desktop is there, but nothing is in it – Gary Holiday Oct 12 '17 at 18:22
  • Did you have files on your desktop/screen before the rename? – nohillside Oct 13 '17 at 7:51
  • Yes, I had a bunch of files and folders. – Gary Holiday Oct 13 '17 at 15:16
