I am truly stumped! Whilst copying files into a folder with Win98SE fully updated, all my desktop icons migrated to the left hand ssction with automatic placement and I can no longer move them into other parts of the screen.
I am certain that it is a windows file thing. Rolling back the registry to an earlier functional date doesn't work. Completely removing my Matrox G550 and re-installing doesn't work either.
Try right clicking on an epmty area of the desk top. then hover the mouse pointer over 'arrange icons by' you should then get another menu, make sure 'auto arrange' and 'align to grid' are not selected.
