Where are the physical location of those Portal Fences link to? Inside local drive, network drive?
D:/ Shortcuts \ Folders with shortcuts
Which reminds me, i'm not sure if this is related or not but I also redirected My Documents default folder to D, so there's this folder there
D:\Users\Myname\My documents folder
What I don't really understand is why you need a portal fences linking to the same shortcut that already appear on your desktop.
To put it simply, with this setup i could change shortcuts remotely without accessing the target computer directly.
And if you really do not need those shortcut on the desktop area, why you can not simply delete it? If you actually deleted off those desktop icons and it reappear after you reboot, than there is something else restoring those icons back to your desktop area. Which is why I suggest to look at if your Onedrive desktop sync is turned on.
I just checked this and my Windows 10 is stripped off of onedrive using optimization tools. Its not in add remove programs
BTW theres something i noticed, in task manager > startup I have 2 instances of stardock pointing to the same directory e.g program files (x86) / Stardock is this norma;l?
