Files that begin with a dot are "hidden". In Emelfm either click the "H" button or press Ctrl+h. In Bash you can list hidden files using "ls -a" or "ls -A". You can also list just the hidden files with "ls -d .*"
/home/dsl are your active configuration files.
/etc/skel is where the files in /home/dsl originated, and is used for remastering, for giving new user accounts a starting point, and as a way to replace personal configs that you may have destroyed.
By the way, there is no file called /.xtdesktop. "/" is the root directory, so /.xtdesktop would have to be a file in the root directory....and it ain't.
