    Check inside the folders on your right desktop (including the recycle bin). If your pointer happened to be over one of the folders when you released the mouse button, it could have placed it inside one of them.

    If it's not there, right-click on the Windows Logo in the Taskbar > goto File Explorer > Then type WWE Themes in the search box in the top right corner and wait for it to 'search This PC'.

    Hello Rawad,

    In addition, right click on your desktop and click on View -> Auto arrange icons to see if that may return it if the folder is just offscreen.

    Hope this helps,

    I have no idea where it went, I tried both your methods and the folder can't be found.

    SOLUTION : What I decided to do is a system restore , I was able to get my folder back .
