Hello @goodmusic,
Welcome to Linux.org forums.
Which desktop and what distribution are you using?
That would help us help you.

I'm using kali linux 2022.4

Thanks for helping me
first Kalli was not designed to be a desktop daily driver.

Is Kali Linux Right For You?


As the distribution’s developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if you’re unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.

Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges. Although Kali is an open source project, it’s not a wide-open source project, for reasons of security. The development team is small and trusted, packages in the repositories are signed both by the individual committer and the team, and - importantly - the set of upstream repositories from which updates and new packages are drawn is very small. Adding repositories to your software sources which have not been tested by the Kali Linux development team is a good way to cause problems on your system.

That being said. If you are using the gnome desktop with it. gnome does not usually show desktop files. But expects you to navigate to the folder containing the files.
If that is the case for you and you need the files on the desktop I would suggest using a different desktop than gnome.
