    Strange folder appears listed under desktop

    I think you're fine. I think you've just noticed the UsersFilesFolder , a virtual folder ( like Network, This PC, etc. ) that seems to mirror the contents of the user's profile folder.

    Quick Test:
    • In the EXplorer Address bar or a Run dialog, type: shell:UsersFilesFolderEnter
    If that command opens the same folder you juist noticed, everything is fine.

    It's normally always visible when viewing the rooted Desktop in Explorer:

    It has this special icon:

    The icon can be shown or hidden on the Desktop via:
    • Settings >Personalization > Themes and clicking the Desktop icons settings link

    Here are 2 images of 2 different Desktops.
    Does this mean they are both taking up space on the hdd.

    Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.
