The desktop was full. I moved a software program I downloaded to the desktop anyway. It disapeared.

How do you do a search??

Thank you.

You mean it was full visually, correct?

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\xxx\Desktop where xxx is your user name. If not there, try all the other desktop folder for different users (default, etc)

yeah. think Veronica meant that the desktop was already full of icons, which then Dreamliner's suggestion would probably be easiest.

I found it. I unzipped it. I don't know where the extracted folder went. I did another search for it. It didn't show up on the search. I watched where it went [I thought]. It said "OWNER~1~000". I can't find it. Does anyone know where to look??
Thank you for the replies.

It said it sent it to:
"c:\Document~1\owner~1.OOO\Locals~1\temp".
What should I do now??

Look under C:\Documents and Settings\owner~1.OOO\Local Settings\Temp
The tilde or "~" is part is an old 16 bit compatible file-naming convention.
The Local Settings folder is hidden by default.
You'll need to enable viewing of hidden folders if you haven't already.

Alternatively, re-run Winzip or winRAR or whatever you use, and change the extraction destination ;)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
