comment Why does a .DS_Store file keep appearing on the desktop?
@Fendi On Windows I always wanted to see the hidden files, but I left this habit behind after switching to Mac.

comment Why does a .DS_Store file keep appearing on the desktop?
@Fendi The first command sets the hidden files visibility to hidden; the second one forces Finder to restart, action that is needed in order to make it take in consideration the previous command.

See the Wikipedia entry on .DS_Store which explains what the file does. In short, Finder writes one in each folder to track icon locations, sized and the last window position / sort / size so you see a folder the way it was next time you open it. Desktop is always visible, hence the constant recreation of this file by the Finder.
