    File Manager -> Desktop | Not Showing Recycle bin, This PC, etc

    So I like to have many windows/folder open on my computer, and it's a drag to minimize everything to get to the desktop. So I use a pinned folder from the taskbar to quickly open my desktop.

    I followed a tutorial and managed to pin a folder which leads me directly to Desktop when I click it.

    However, the desktop in file manager doesn't show This PC, Recycle Bin, Mozilla Firefox (the 3 files I currently have on my desktop), but it only shows 2 folders I have on my desktop.

    How can I make ALL files and folders I have on my desktop show also when I open desktop through the file manager?

    I hope I'm clear. Please help me out guys.

    So when I click on File Explorer in the taskbar, it opens the Desktop.

    But it says that it's empty. It's not. It has My Computer, Recycle Bin, and Mozilla Firefox on it.

    Why are these files not displaying on the File Explorer -> Desktop area?

    Come on guys, I really need this. Super important for me.

    Okay guys, I did it. So now all of my desktop icons are displayed in File Explorer.

    However... also some files I don't have on my desktop are displayed now. Like Network, Control Panel, OneDrive, and one more.

    I'm trying to customize this. Can I somehow block specific files/folders from appearing no my desktop in file explorer?

    So here is my desktop in file explorer. See the 5 icons I pointed to? Those icons are not on my desktop. I don't know what they're doing there (and one of them is OneDrive, which I followed the tutorial from this forum to completely remove OneDrive).

    How can I remove those files/folder (not completely, just to not show in file explorer/desktop)???

    Thanks :)
