My desktop is extended on two screens, the right one (DP-1) set as the main one. Displays settings :

But as it can be seen below, the desktop icons are duplicated (they show on both screens) :

Although the screens are not mirrored (you can see that the opened window is only displayed on the right, as expected).

  • If I add/remove something on the desktop, the corresponding icon shows/disappears on the other screen.
  • If I move an icon to another place, the change is not reflected on the other screen.

Apart from that, everything works as intended ; I can move windows from one screen to another, and so on.

Is there any settings I am missing ?

In the "desktop settings" for the monitor you don't want to be duplicated, switch between "folder" and "desktop" view. It worked for me.
