I think I might be able to help you with this one, to keep
your icons in the order you want them !
There is probably a setting enabled that lets the icons arrange
1. Go to your desktop background picture and right click on it.
2. Select Arrange Icons
3. Uncheck Auto Arrange.
4. Lock web items on desktop.
I sure hope this works...let us know.

I've searched under Windows Knowledge Base, but haven't found a solution.
If anyone has an idea about how I can lock my rearranged desktop icons, I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks so much!

If you create a new folder on your desktop and put the icons in it .
Would they stay in the same order every time the folder was opened ?

Makai...I clicked on that address and I think you have solved baconbit's
For me and my icons, they stay put by the method in post #2.
The only way they move is if I right click on them and drag them to a
The reason they stay put, is because in the 3 1/2 years I have had my computer,
I have never changed the resolution and I think I am the only one that posts
here at GEEKS that has NEVER had my computer in safe mode.
I guess I haven't had a reason to....YET.
This place ROCKS with good solutions to computer problems!

My husband must have been on my (really our) laptop last nite, because I turned it on this morning only to find my icons stacked on the left side of my screen in no order whatsoever.... grrrrr
Thank you, MAKAI, very much for your research.
And, FFLOWERGIRL, thank you too for trying. Your colorful responses brighten me up for sure!!
