I have created a desktop icon for a folder I use very often. But whenever I open this shortcut, Thunar will open three windows, each with that folder, instead of just one.
Does anyone have an idea how to stop this annoying behaviour?

First delete your current shortcut and ensure you created the folder on your desktop the following way:

1. Navigate top the folder you use often
2. Right-click on it and choose Send To > Desktop (Create Link)

Also, you may have set Thunar to double-click to open items but not done the same for the desktop. If so, please go to Settings > Desktop > Icons tab and untick Single click to activate items.

Doing that, does the folder still open multiple times?
