Please *bottom* post on mailing lists. Your reply should go _below_ the
trimmed part of the text you're replying to.

Peter is right. Desktops are not for storage. They are a work area. Your
working files should be in folders -- that's why Ubuntu provides you with
~/Documents, ~/Pictures, ~/Videos, ~/Music etc. Use them!

If you want to keep something to hand, put a _shortcut_ on your desktop.

Otherwise, no, I don't think there's anything you can do to block certain
files from being opened by certain apps.
