Windows 10: Desktop icons keep rearranging
I have 2 screens and win10 will scramble my icons if I turn any of them off and some times even when I don't turn 1 off.
microsoft does not care about your problem unless it makes them money. there are many other stupid things ms won't fix for the same reason. they won't delegate the resources to fix all those little bugs and incompatibilities, so why should we shoe them any loyalty.
Please keep reporting this via feedback (e.g. Windows key + ?) and MS sites e.g. socialtechnet. It's not even a new problem in Win 10.
It happens to me with desktop icons must just be win 10 bug
Does not work (sorry)
Just tested and it made no difference. Seems that uncheck View|Align icons to grid" (right-click on the desktop) helps but icons are still moved at times. A good program to restore icons is "DesktopOK."
DesktopOK 4.35 Save and restore the desktop icon positions.
Download from upper right hand of the screen.
Download DesktopOK 4.35
This issue happens also on a new Windows 10 machine just received. Seems that Microsoft has not prioritized this issue otherwise it would have been solved long ago.
I used the prog DesktopOK and i noticed it saves my desktop as 2048x1152 instead off 2560x1440 .
Is that normal or is it where my problems lay,
that W10 somehow uses that lower resolution when I come out of sleepmode/standby or when I alt tab from games and it rearranges my desktop icons...
It also resizes my open tabs to 1024x768
im losing my mind over this ...
I remember having had such issues a while ago.. solved after installing a current windows 10 compatible graphics driver for my gfx card.
That should be your first stop I guess.
I am having this issue as well. Every time I reboot the icons move over to the right side of my screen. Now, I am running multiple monitors - my laptop, a monitor plugged into the monitor port on the laptop and a monitor connected to USB via the DisplayLink driver. At one point a windows upgrade seemed to fix the problem, but over the last couple of months, it has resurfaced.
Along with this, and I don't know if it's related, every time I reboot, dialog boxes for each of my external drives open on the desktop. I have no idea why it does that.
If anyone has any thoughts, they would be appreciated. If not, hopefully the summer update, whenever that happens will solve these problems.
Is there an english version?
Well, I did something, but cannot find out what it was I dis or how to rectify it. This AM when starting Windows 10 Home, I had no icons on the desktop. Using the file explorer>desktop, they are there, so i did not delete them. Somehow I have...
I have just installed Windows 10 from Windows 7. no checks on Auto arrange or Align Icons to Grid. I also use the program Fences to arrange some of my Icons but I also have some outside of the Fences. Any suggestions?
I work for a photographer and I need to be able to view large icons in an order that I control. At present, I am able to rearrange (photo) icons in whatever order I choose. But when I attempt to look at a sequence of images (one at a time, of...

how do i do that on win 10 ?
Since this morning's reboot all desktop icons have changed size and are now located on the left hand side of the screen. After returning them to the place I've selected if I re-reboot the story is the same. I am using Windows Defender at present,...
