Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?

MacOS High Sierra Version 10.13.2 desktop computer

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

To finish my message; How can I put back my Desktop folders from the trash; I received the message "Are you sure you want to remove "Desktop" from iCloud Drive?" I guess I don't. How to restore folders and icons to desktop?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
