    Margrave,

    If the problem symptom returns [Desktop showing the correct contents when looked at in File explorer but not when looking at the Desktop itself], right-click on an empty area of the Desktop and select Refresh.

    Many people have found that their Desktop's are not refreshing automatically and are forced to take this step. I searched & searched for a permanent solution but every suggestion I found either had no effect or had only a limited-duration effect.

    Would it be simpler (and more permanent) to disable One Drive?
    I hated One Drive. But rather than uninstall it I just disabled it.

    In this folder ...
    C:\Users\<USER-NAME>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive

    I renamed these two files ...
    OneDrive.exe
    OneDriveStandaloneUpdater.exe

    to ...
    OneDrive.exe.not
    OneDriveStandaloneUpdater.exe.not

    Done.
    If you like, here's a more effective way to disable OneDrive. Running SFC would undo your method.
