Someone have an idea why, when I create a file or a folder or anything in my home folder, it appears also on my desktop ?
I sought an option in the config editor (I browsed everything) but unsuccessfully.

Thanks for the help

try this out buddy

1. Edit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs
2. Designate a desktop directory by changing XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME" to XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/desktop"
3. Make the desktop directory - " mkdir ~/desktop "
Log out and back and see if this fixes the problem
