Now seems like a daft question but i still
haven't yet got my head around
When i add an icon to the desktop (e.g. right click on a menu entry and
then select "add to desktop", should this icon appear in my folder view
as well as the desktop? It only appears on the desktop outside the folder
view and a ".desktop" is not created in "/home/<user>/Desktop"
Seems like you gave the answer already yourself. The folderview shows files

on an hence more than one folder-view on the desktop, would get a copy in
each of those folder.
If they had more than one folder view then I am assuming
they would not not be
pointing to "/home/<user>/Desktop", they would be pointing to other
The desktop icons would only go into "/home/<user>/Desktop" which i hope
unique folder in the users home directory. Are there potentially multiple
plasma Desktop folders that could hold desktop icons for each different
desktop (containment??) within one users home directory?

could be that the folder view should not allow "Desktop Folder"
when the screen is set to "Desktop" or if KDE4 is updating a KDE3 environment
then it should move the old ".desktop" files to the new format and then remove
"/home/<user>/Desktop" folder. Then again, i don't know enough about
so i do understand that i might be talking out of the orifice i should be
