/home folder on desktop - how to remove [SOLVED]

LM20 Cinnamon

I suddenly have a /home folder icon on my desktop and don't know how it came there.
For me it is enough to see that in the Nemo file manager.

How can I get rid of this icon?

i don't dare to try the menu item unmount.

Thanks in advance for helping comments

Also thanks to you for sharing your experience.

i will now see if I can possible replace my 500 GB HDD with a 500 GB SSD. I prefer the SSD because I am using the PC on a boat thus have vibrations.
