I have three shortcuts to three financial spreadsheets on the desktop but dont know why but now when I open any of these and make changes on the spreadsheets and then come out the shortcuts appear on a different part of the desktop.This has only started happening when my laptop was taken back to factory settings and office 2010 was installed.It only happens with these shortcuts.I use windows 7.The spread sheets were done on office 2003
