    In that case you are not doing what I was doing. "Shut Down options"? It is not in Shut Down menu and it has nothing to do with Shut Down menu.

    Here's what I'm talking about

    The sub-menu that appears when you hit your user name at the top of the Start Menu. It contains names of other interactive users ("Alice" and "Bob" in the above picture). If you hit one of the other names, you will switch to that user without logging out of the current one.

    The same "Switch User" functionality is also available if you hit Ctrl+Alt+Del. The screen that appears will contain "Switch User" option.

    Still no change. I switched users and icons just like I left them.

    Well, as I said, the issue is immediately, easily, 100% reproducible on a variety of Windows 10 Pro x64 machines with 1511 on them.

    I just blew the dust off my old Vaio laptop with spanking new install of the original Windows 10 Home (not updated to 1511 yet). The problem does not reproduce there. (I noticed some instances of icons losing their positions under different scaling values, but eventually they settled down.)

    Now I'm running the update to 1511 to see if it will make the problem to appear on that laptop as well.

    Just finished the 1511 update of Windows 10 Home on the Vaio.

    The issue is there in its full glory. I set the scaling to 125% using Settings->System->Display (without even going into the "Advanced" categories). Now fast-switching users loses the icon arrangement.

    In fact, there's no need to even login into another user. All one needs to do is hit Ctrl+Alt+Del, select "Switch User" option and then immediately login back into the same user. Icons will be swept to the left edge of the screen.

    There's no additional software of any kind on that Vaio (meaning no ESET).

    After experimenting with several completely unrelated machines, I'm afraid I have to conclude that you are not following the sequence of steps needed to reproduce the problem.

    The problem is immediately reproducible.

    I too confirm the indicated issue. Since the 1511 update,both the desktop icon cannot stay in customized position and will all shift to the left when: 1. logout the account and login again 2. wake up from sleep 3. reboot 4. other random incidents. I did not install any antivirus software. I have tried various ways and none work (including the registry edit method https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...ot-saving.html previously shown to work for many users).

    Thanks for 'temporarily' solving the problem for my home computer. After changing the scaling back to 100%, the problem did disappear! However, I am using 4k monitor and I really need scaling > 100%. BTW, I have other computers at work with scaling > 100% and also upgraded to 1511 recently. But they do not have this issue.

    I just tested it on four independent machines. Three of them were set up by me (so they might have something "unusual" in common). The fourth one is a fresh Lenovo ThinkPad laptop with a high-res display (come scaled to 200% from the factory), which just got updated to 1511. The problem is immediately and easily reproducible on all of these machines.

    Once I changed scaling to 100% on one of these machines, the problem disappeared.

    (In an hour I will test it on a fresh non-updated machine, then update it and see what happens.)

    Are you sure you are using the same sequence of steps as described above? The key point is to switch users, not to simply log-out of one and log-in into another.
