    Thanks for the link, but it is not about my problem. Although libraries are hidden in navigation pane, they are still visible in Desktop

    Me too, but the folder you show is different. I have noting in that folder too. However, Desktop -> ThisPC contains links. Also, maybe it will be useful, i''ve updated recently to creators update my windows 10!

    Here is the folder i am talking about

    The Desktop folder you are referring to is the shell:desktop folder. I'm not aware of a way to remove items from showing in it.

    I am on The CU as well, I have no need for these either. I find it strange that every time I update I get duplicate drives. I have a fix for that but it is annoying.
