I suspect that this is a Windows issue for you, not a digiKam one. I 
think you need to add your temp folder as a favourite in File Explorer ( 
or whatever its called these days). Sorry but I cannot help you with the 
details of that as I am using Linux for my desktop, but I am sure the 
internet will provide now that you have some idea on what to look for.
