untick it, then when your icons are exactly the way you want, tick it and apply.

sorry, i misread your posting.

When your icons are the way you like them, right-click on an open part of your desktop, andopen properties-desktop-customise desktop-web, and tick the box that says, lock desktop items, and apply.
