  • Hi,

    How about other files? or this issue only happens on the PDF? have you tried to manually copy a PDF to the desktop?

    My guess is that the PDF does exist in a desktop, but not the real desktop, but a virtualized desktop.

    such as path users\username \Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Virtualized\C\Users\username\Desktop

    As atest, you can use Process Monitor to capture the process, download this tool from this link

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-in/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx

    once you download and install it, open it, while it is recording the activities, open a dialog, which shows the specific pdf file, then in process monitor , use keyword (suc as pdf) to find the specific process

    You can refer to this link

  • Add: I also suggest you check the Folder Option\view, show all hidden files, check the result.
