    Desktop icons position/dimension reset every time I sign-out/sign-in


    Until yesterday everything was working fine. This night I shutdown my computer and this morning, when I started it up, I noticed the icons of my dekstop in the default location and with the default dimensions.

    I repositioned them , I changed icon dimensions again but if I sign out/sign in , restart , shutdown/startup the computer , all my desktop icons go back to default position and default dimension.

    Any clue on how can I fix this?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Replying just to add that I also tried DesktopOK; I place the icons where I want them and as soon as I click 'save' the icons go back to the left side of the desktop and in fact DesktopOK saved them all in the left side position.

    I followed several guide I found on internet however without any luck. I tried to
    • re-arrange icons where I like them and hit Refresh, as soon as I click Refresh all icons get sorted again on the left side;
    • re-arrange icons, Sign-out/Sign-it, icons sorted on the left side;
    • re-arrange icons, Shutdown/Start, icons sorted on the left side.


    My desktop was working fine , I didn't install new applications nor removed old applications. No updates (at least no visible updates) was downloaded from Windows Update.
    What can I try?

    Try right clicking your desktop, hover to View and uncheck 'Auto arrange icons'.
