              Create a folder on your desktop. Then export the image to that folder. At least on my Windows 10 computer, I cannot export directly to the desktop. I have to create a folder and export to that folder.

                Maybe you can see it in the Lr library- but that is only a preview thumbnail.  Is there a ! on the photo border, or a ? on the folder name, which would indicate that Lr does not know where your original photo files are. (missing- moved or renamed?) The original must be available for Lr to create an exported version.

                 

                In reply to Jim- "I cannot export directly to the desktop".  that is strange. I have no trouble in exporting any image to the desktop. Noting that the Desktop folder physical location is buried like-  { C:\Users\Your Name\Desktop } and the export dialog must show this full pathway to the location.
