Problems with folders on desktop

After several years of using "straight" Ubuntu I'm giving Mate 22.04 a go in service. So far I've had no more problems than with any other unfamiliar system. Except ..

(1) I have two folders that in the Desktop folder that shows in a file manager window the icons appear on the desktop but without any titles. How do I make them appear?

(2) If I create a new folder by right clicking on the desktop I get a tiddly-tiny icon. I can make it larger. Is there a way to have it created with a decent size - and with its title showing?
