There may be a reason this can't be done or if it can, I have just not found it.
Is there any way to pin an icon to a specific point on the desktop and make to STAY there? No matter what type of re-arranging is done to all other icons, I want it to be permanently located in that one specific location on the desktop.

I have tried using Stardock's "Fences" but it seems to have other issues when used for this and I am hoping there might be a registry setting that would allow fixing the location for things in the same way the main desktop icons are always located together without regard to spelling when sorting by name. (Though even this is reversed by the sort-order alternating from ascending to descending).

Is a 3rd party app the only way to do this and if so, are there any other than Fences i can try?
