Icons keep moving on desktop

  Bike-it 17:33 10 Feb 2018

I have a Toshiba Qosmio laptop running windows 10 but i have the icons on the desktop organised to my needs, but when i shut the laptop down and turn it back on say the next day all the icons on the desktop keep moving over to the left hand side of the screen.Anyone know how to fix this so the icons stay when i put them before i shut it down? Thanks in advance.

In Windows 8.1 you simply right click on the desktop then click on "View" then untick "Auto arrange icons". Windows 10 may be different but it should still have that ability somewhere.
