All folders visible in desktop linux

I have a problem where all the folders in my laptop are visible in my desktop, I tried following the instruction as suggested in all of my folders appeared on my desktop; how do I remove them and made changes within the ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs which is refelected temporarily, but the moment I restart my laptop the file gets reset back to just how it was i.e. XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/".

Can anyone helpme in getting a permanent fix?
