You will see "arrange icons by".
Click on the drop down menu and choose what you want.

If you want to go a bit further... in my signature is a link called Desktop layout. This is a direct download link, so clicking on it will download a zip file.
Once you get the zip file, extract Layout.dll to your C:\windows\system32 folder.
For the registry file, extract it to your desktop and double-click on it. You will be asked to confirm installation into your registry... just confirm "yes". The registry will be updated.
What will happen is you will now have two additional entries in the menus if you right-click on My Computer, or the Recycle bin. The entries are... Save Desktop icon layout, and Restore Desktop icon layout.
Once you arrange your icons on your desktop, right-click on the Recycle bin and select "Save Desktop icon layout". This will save the postitions of all the icons on your desktop. If something happens to where your icons get scrambled again, all you have to do is right-click on the Recycle bin again, and choose "Restore Desktop icon layout". You may want to periodically save the icon positions as you add or rearrange icons on your desktop.
After you're all done, you can delete the registry file you extracted to your desktop.
