I am using Manjaro with xfce desktop.
If I create a programme shortcut on the DESKTOP then it appears as required.
e.g. if I create a desktop shortcut (launcher) to ‘Pinta’ - then that is what appears as its name. The shortcut’s name is ‘Pinta’
But if I MOVE that shortcut into a FOLDER (even one on the desktop), and open that folder in Thunar, THEN it has “.desktop” added to the name. It appears as “Pinta.desktop”.
ALL my desktop shortcuts that have been put into any folder have this behaviour. It’s driving me crazy!
It only started to happen recently after a system update.
How do I change this behaviour?
BTW I have Pantheon installed as well and it is the same except it also shows shortcuts on the desktop with the ‘.desktop’ extension
Yes, I have extensively googled the issue - to no avail.
