After restart all folders and files in one spot

I use Manjaro Cinnamon before restart I see this:

after restart all these files and folders in red color are in this spot:


Win10 doesn't have something this comfortable. Cool.

Whereby, I haven't seen Win10 for ages :smiley:

Are you using multiple monitors?
What are your settings for the desktop icons? right click on the desktop and the popup will give you the link to the settings.

Are you using multiple monitors?

no, I have one 4k monitor.
Where Can I find desktop icons settings? Could you write direct path to the icons settings?

Are you talking about this window:

That looks ok.

Is nemo-desktop running?
ps -ef | grep nemo

As a last try you could reset all cinnamon settings and see if that fixes it:
gsettings reset-recursively org.cinnamon

ps -ef | grep nemo
1615  1105  0 08:38 ?        00:00:31 nemo-desktop
7024     1  0 15:14 ?        00:00:02 nemo /home/mmm/Desktop/Gutenberg Blocks for WordPress and React Developers
8749  8742  0 15:29 pts/1    00:00:00 grep --colour=auto nemo

but I don't think that reset all cinnamon settings is a good idea.

Are the desktop icons working for a different user? Can you just create a test user and check?

any thoughts guys?

maybe you click multiple desktop?
have you check desktop folders and files in file explorer (mine: dolphin KDE)? it is gone?

No multiple desktops:

No, I mean linux have multiple desktop (desktop 1, 2, etc) feature not multiple monitor

the box beside manjaro logo in my KDE

and check in file explorer

I turned off Workspaces, but I got this after restart:

this helped me:
