Recently purchased new Win 11 PC and installed Quicken (latest Home\Business\Rental subscription version) to new PC. Quicken data file was restored from latest backup from old Win 10 PC. Quicken data file located in \Documents\Quicken folder and backups are in Quicken\Documents\backup folder which are Quicken defaults.

After exiting Quicken the back up is saved to correct folder, but there is ALSO copy of the backup file on the desktop.

    Check that default setting for the backups, because the default is actually the Desktop.  Note there are two backup settings, one for automatic backups and one for manual backups (which you can also have prompt you to do when you exit).  You will find these settings in Edit -> Preferences -> Backup, and on the manual backup dialog that you can bring up with Ctrl+B.
