I used Kate text editor to create a file called
new_email_accounts.txt which I saved on my desktop, but from the screenshot below another file was created too called
Problem is, when I run the
ls -la command in the terminal I cannot see the file as seen in the screenshot below
And another issue is, when I try to delete the file using delete key or a combination of shift + delete keys, I get an error as shown below
I have also noticed this behavior quite often usually when I download files from my browsers; they seem to create another copy of the file downloaded with added extension for example
.crwdownload, which is (or are) automatically removed after rebooting or logging off.
What could be the cause of all this behavior and can it be mitigated?
