Desk Top Icons - re-arrange

  Yimbo 18:30 22 Sep 2009

Since down-loading a Real Player update, my Desk Top icons - formerly arranged logically (for me at least!!) are now thoroughly mixed up. How can I place them exactly where I want them? I've tried dragging them - but each time I do this, the icon disappears into an adjacent one!

Right-click Desktop > Arrange Icons By > De-select Auto Arrange.

Now you can move your icons to wherever you need them. G

Right click the middle of the screen.And see what you can pick from there.

I would use Icon Restore as well click here

Do a System Restore to just before the Real Player update.

Once the icons are in proper order, do a System Restore back to the original point.

Also use Align to Grid rather than Auto Arrange, which allows dragging and dropping icons if necessary.
