    If your File Explorer is configured to show hidden files, then you should be able to see all hidden shortcuts on your Desktop. If you don't see them, then the reason for the behavior you observe must be something else (not hidden shortcuts).

    Don't forget system files. Shortcut shouldn't be marked as system, but who knows. Enable also "show system files" and try again.
