Is there any way to have Windows XP sort my desktop icons into alphabetical order, from the top left of my screen and down and across? Sorting desktop icons
right click sort desktop icons by name?
I've tried that and although it's brought all my icons together, I cannot for the life of me work out what, if any, order they've been laid out in.
do you mean the names of the icons in alphabetical order?
Why not move them yourself?
Cos I've got 83 of the little buggers and get more every week. It's a real pain to have to move them one by one just to squeeze a new on into order.
Hmmm...83?Are you putting them yourself? Or do they mysteriously appear?On the desktop, right click, Arrange icons by, make sure "Auto Arrange" is unchecked.
I've done the Righ Click, Arrange thing, but it doesn't seem to be able to put them in alphabeitcal order :(They don't mysteriously appear or disappear. It's simply the number of programs or documents that I have ready for instant access.
Why don't you just have them in the programs menu, the difference between clicking an icon on the desktop and opening one via start/programs must be 1 or 2 seconds at the most. Keep only your important ones on the desktop.
Or you could create one or more folders and group together similar ones, or ones starting A to J, K to S, etc.
