Yes but don't you have to actually turn this folder function on. I think its designed to keep control of the desktop Many people with sight often clutter the desktop with all sorts of junk and an admin can now make that particular folder or any other, banned to be changed by anyone else. Its actually a good idea I suppose but then I like having a cluttered desktop!

Subject: Re: [nvda] Installing NVDA and disabling some sort of security setting
No, there's a new thing in the latest Windows 10. I think I still have
the message somewhere or other. It prevents the installer from making a
desktop shortcut and it might give an error or something, but apparently
NVDA runs just fine once it's done, other than not having the desktop

Recently, I saw a message that talked about the need to disable some sort of security settings in windows 10 when you were installing NVDA. It was a folder I think that you couldn’t get access to and less you disable the setting, and NVDA needs to have that access when it installs. I’ve just spent some time looking through old messages trying to find this and I can’t. Can anybody help me out? I’m sorry to be so vague, but I just can’t find this message.--
