I'm on Windows 10, and GIMP 2.10.10. Bit weird so bear with me for a second.
A few months ago I created a folder on my desktop named
decode. Within the folder I placed a few files, including some images that I opened and edited or made with GIMP. A few days after that, I deleted the folder and all its contents.
For the next couple of weeks I noticed the folder kept reappearing on my desktop, empty, and I wasn't sure why. I thought it might've been windows's fault, but then I used Process Monitor to see if I could pin down the exact culprit.
It turns out, every time I open GIMP now, it creates the folder again.
This can probably be fixed by reinstalling GIMP, but I'm interested to know why this would happen in the first place. Should this be reported as a GIMP bug?
Thanks in advance.
