    Desktop icon arrangement not saving after restart.


    Hi, every time i rearrange desktop icon after restarting or shutting down it keeps back from the previous arrangement.

    My problem is same as this Windows 10: Folder View Settings and Desktop Icon Positions Not Saving

    I already use the autofix it works but only one time use. It will only work if i rearrange it in safemode and run the x64 batch file.

    Tried also this

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\

    -AND-

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\

    Double click on (Default) and replace "%SystemRoot%\SysWow64\shell32.dll" with "%SystemRoot%\system32\windows.storage.dll" in both file destinations.

    But this 2 location are already
    %SystemRoot%\system32\windows.storage.dll.


    I have the latest windows 10 version 1903


    Any new fix?

    There are some very long threads about desktop icon positions moving. It's been a problem for some users through several editions of Windows (= pre Win 10).

    One workaround is use a 3rd party tool to save and restore them.
    Another 'fix' is suggested in post #3 here
    Any Cure Yet for Desktop Icons Moving, Changing, Resizing themselves?

    There may be others.. feel free to search the forum. This topic keeps re-emerging..

    If you care to read that thread, the links, and others on the forum there are various programs recommended.
    As I said, this topic keeps coming back, alas.

    Windows now seems more stable in this respect but I use DesktopOK on all PCs to reset icon positions when Windows manages to mess them up
