    The icons on my desktop reset everytime I relog


    I'm trying to clean up my desktop, but every time I turn my laptop off, and then come back to it, all the icons have reset to the way they were before I started moving stuff around. Even the change from small to medium icons resets, and I have no idea how to fix this.

    Something like this is happening to me as well. I change my Icons to small and sometimes, after a reboot, they turn medium again. However, it doesn't happen every time, I have noticed. I haven't found a fix yet.

    Hi,

    Google lead me here, i have exactly the same problem. Maybe it's about the graphic drivers?
    Let's find some similarities between our specifications so maybe we can filter the problem.

    Try creating a new Restore Point before you log off. It's only a small PITA.

    Same problem with me. Icons reset upon restart, and the size switches from small back to medium. Tried a handful of solutions online and so far nothing has worked

    Can anyone else confirm this?

    It only happens on systems which have been upgraded and where no clean install has been performed on.

    All my clean installs don't have this behavior, and if this wasn't the only problem I had with this system, I would do a clean install, as well. However, for now, I can live with it, because it's only 2 clicks to get the icons to small again.

    Also, another thing I noticed, is that the icons grow a little bigger with each restart.
