    Windows 10 auto arrange OFF, rearranged desktop icons too often

    This may help.
    Stop Windows 10 Desktop Icons from Changing Location After a Screen Refresh
    I have deleted the file.
    Other readers of the thread with recurring rearranged desktop icons, please try also ... and post your findings.

    Hopefully, this file deletion of the icon cache will cure the case of the rearranged icons, which is terribly annoying.
    Terribly annoying!!!!
    I deleted the file and reboot my i5 8gb ram, 256gb memory, SP3.
    Let's see what happens.
    Windows employees, please develop a permanent fix.

    Microsoft is finally addressing the issue, see announcement for Windows 10 insider preview, build 15002.

    Desktop Icon Placement and Scaling Improvements:
    We’ve heard from you that sometimes desktop icons aren’t scaled or arranged as expected, particularly after docking/undocking your device, working with monitors that have different DPI, or projecting your monitor. We want users to feel that desktop icons are stable, scaled properly, and move predictably when changing monitor configurations, so we’ve made changes to how this logic works in order to address your feedback. Now when you change your multi-monitor configuration, dock/undock your device, project your display, add or remove monitors, or otherwise make changes that affect the icon scaling, you should see an improvement in how the system adjusts the layout of your desktop icons. Try it out and let us know how it goes!
    Anybody able to contribute please test, and provide your feedback to Microsoft.

    Let's hope this build (15002) has THE fix.

    Thanks for the info.

    Yes, but what about icons that rearrange themselves at random, when none of the events described have taken place?

    This is what I was attempting to describe. Thank you for making it clear that the icons simply occasionally just rearrange themselves
