Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help! If nothing else, please post relevant user manuals, I’m happy to do the work reading. I already read the KDE Dolphin manual, but found nothing related.
It seems like the /home/name directory is linked to the desktop. Every file I place in the /home/name directory immediately appears on top left corner of desktop. The files are not located in /home/name/desktop. It does seem like a hard link. If I delete the folder from the desktop, it also deletes in the /home/name.
This happened after I created folders alongside /home/name. I created /home/work and /home/school and home/personal/name. I also moved files from an old windows system with an external hard drive. These had similar names like “documents” “videos” etc. I selected to “overwrite” or “write in” when prompted.
