View Full Version : Desktop icons change position!

Grrrr - this is just one of the reasons that use a PC less and less! Arrange the desk icons in W 7 into neat groups and every now and again (I suspect due to an update from MS) they all huddle into the top left corner.
OK, Right clicked on view on the Desktop/View and Auto arrange icons and Align icons to grid is as usual not ticked.
What is causing the icons to change?

try this - might work :)

right click on the desktop go into personalize, click on change desk top icons on the left of the screen, a new box opens un-tick the Allow themes to change desktop icons box

Thanks but that box has never been ticked

Graphics driver update may well do it, as resolution reset is typically part of this.
