View Full Version : Desktop icons - Stay put damn you!!

03-04-2002, 07:16 PM
This is my first F1 posting so please be gentle if this question seems overly simplistic.

I work very hard to place the icons on my desktop where I want them, and then for some reason they will shift them around.
Is there any way to make them stay put??

Rightclick on a blank part of your desktop, select 'Arrange Icons' from the menu and uncheck anything that is checked.

Don't you just love the way the icons arrange themselves after you have dragged them around.

Right click within a empty area of the desktop and click on Arrange Icons, in the following menu see if there is a tick in the Auto Arrange and if so remove. Remove any other ticks such as Arrange By Date and Arrange by Date, etc, then have a go at dragging them to there new position and see if they will stay there now.
