Hi, everytime i move all my files and folders on my desktop and then restart my laptop they have all reverted back to where they were! Please can anyone tell me how to 'lock' them?

Thanks for that! I always thought there was a simpler way though?

Nice one Mikee.

I been looking for freeware version again cos' W7 driving me mad (and Iconoid doesn't work on it).

Also, W7 randomly removes random shortcuts from my desktop.


Control Panel
Shortcuts to my USB HDD

Sometimes one or two. Sometimes all of them.

Doesn't happen all the time. If one disappears I don't always notice immediately.

The tool looks just the job
