Desktop Icons - rearrange themselves after reboot

  Evolution 18:29 05 Oct 2005


I'm trying to arrange my desktop icons in a meaningful way.

No problem doing that but whenever I reboot, they are rearranged in a haphazard fashion.

I am using a Dell Inspiron XPS, (with XP Home, sp2), screen resolution of 1600 x 1200 and DPI setting at Normal(96dpi). Nvidia drivers are latest release for the Go Ultra 6800.

I don't have this problem with any other PC.

Any ideas?

right click on your desktop, and choose arrange icons by, and ensure "align to grid" and "show desktop icons" and "lock web items on desktop" are all selected.

Thanks Joe,

I actually downloaded a small utility called icon restore which did the trick.
