    The 'Desktop' folder in the navigation pane is your potential User Desktop folder, your screenshot is your Active Desktop.

    The Desktop proper folder, in the navigation pane, is the culmination of all available PC stations for your user account...

    the Active Desktop is the workspace where you choose the icons...
