    Brute Force?

    That was worth testing but no, sync settings are not causing this. It's one laptop doing this (see my specs), all user accounts on that laptop. I hide the desktop icons after sign in, next sign in they are shown again and I have to hide them again.
    The only other thing I can think of (at the moment) is the "Brute Force" approach.

    If you know what Registry setting is responsible, you could create a batch file to adjust that setting and then set the batch file to run when you start your laptop.

    RegScanner search on "desktopicons" (to pick up "show" or "hide") shows a a dozen relevant entries:

    Checkout the 2 Desktop.ini hidden files on the desktop, too.
