Server 2016 Essentials Shared folers

Help,

I set up Share folders in Server 2012 standard with Essentials experience. when I added a computer to the network with a network user account (standard user) they get the shared folder automatically on their desktop and in network location under "this PC".

the problem is unlike network drives that cant be deleted and cant be moved from the "this PC" network location section, these can. how do I stop this?
