Change User Desktop Folder Path by Using PowerShell

We could change your desktop folder location by using the following powershell script. Actually we need to change values of specific registry keys , because of this you need to restart the computer after executing the script.
Change new path variable to your custom folder path, execute script using powershell and restart the computer.

$newPath = 'D:\MyNewDesktopLocation'  
$key1 = "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders"  
$key2 = "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders"  
set-ItemProperty -path $key1 -name Desktop $newPath  
set-ItemProperty -path $key2 -name Desktop $newPath
