98 SE Desktop Icons - repositioning

  Pidder 18:34 06 Jun 2003

I have dragged some Desktop Icons into 5 small groups on the right for easy access. Using Maintenance Wizard resets them all to the big group on the left of screen. Is there a way to stop this so I don't have to redrag them every time I use Maintenance? Thanks for any advice.

Auto-arrange is not ticked. I have now ticked "view as web page" and will see if this solves it.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Regret that didn't work. Anyone any other ideas?

Thought for a moment I was talking rubbish. Click Start -Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Maintenance Wizard. Runs Disc cleanup, Scandisk and Defrag automatically.

Sorry too, didn't mean to be rude.

Paul - Thanks for you view. I have come to the same conclusion. It seems to be defrag which causes the problem so I shall have to do it less often and accept the need to reset the icons.
