    Window 10 Pro 64x

    Desktop Icons issue

    One month ago, i upgraded from windows 7 pro (x64) to windows 10 pro (x64).

    For 1 month it was working properly, but today (08.09.2015) i log into the windows and i founded an very annoying issue. I can't move my desktops icons and shortcuts. HOW ?! All my icons are sorted at the left of the desktop. I tried to put icons back to their places, but when i click "refresh" all icons are back at the same place where i founded. I looked on the internet to find some answers ( i fixed corrupted filles, i tried fences) no succes. Besides that i can't even set "view folders" in small sides to medium sides.

    Does anyone have an answer ? I need it very fast !

    Right click on your desktop and under the "view" and "sort" options pick you preferences for your icons.
