I have a folder portal on my desktop that contains all of the files in my desktop folder. When new files are added to the desktop (or the desktop folder) the icons show up the desktop as well as in the desktop folder portal. I cannot hide the icons on the desktop and only display them in the portal. I want to have the files displayed in the fences portal and not on the desktop. What seems strange is that some files are in the portal only but some are displayed in both places.
Here is a screen capture showing file icons in both places.
Thank you for any suggestions and help.
