First, your may be interested in:
https://wiki.gnome.org/HowDoI/AppFolders

Then:
You can try look in home/YourUsername/.local/share/applications

I’m also noticed that some of my choices stored in
/home/YourUsername/.config/dconf/user

It is binary file. Some insides:

  1. \00bfavorite-appsrhythmbox.desktop\00org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop\00 ...

  2. recent-characters\00\00\00\00\00\00\00🎪\00🔛 ...

  3. A lot of other things, the Web search engine settings included.

Maybe your move that file out temporarily, and see if that helps (log in/log out)?

In Ubuntu, on an LTS version i have had lags in every app after one update. Moved all of my home away. That isn’t solved the issue. But then i created a new user for myself and moved my things to its home (but not the configs, of course!). Lags gone. Do not forget that, in that case, your may want to grant the privileges to the new user, if your former one had them. But that rather will not help…

You should not to remove the icons, is only a visual bug, if you remove then when it reload the desktop it won’t to show any icon form this app, i resolved this only draging the repeated icon on the folder where it should to be

Sorry :slight_smile: Are your not see a duplication inside of these “folder where it should to be”? Then it is solved.

Moving icons into the folder has no effect, taking icons out of the folder have. Solve the problem for now

Can your, please, specify how your’ve solved this issue? I hope your’re not moved icons out of the /usr/share/applications …?

evilgamer means (below i am dragging the “Photos”):

I just drag the all the items out of the folders and reorganize them. IDK if the problem will come back.

Your were rather need to “like” evilgamer, then :slight_smile:
