Windows 10: Wandering desktop icons

    Wandering desktop icons


    I know this has been brought up before but I don't remember seeing a satisfactory fix. This is absolutely my biggest problem with Windows 10. I guess I'm just a neat freak that likes a place for everything and everything in its place.

    Can this be fixed? if OR what is the best work around?

    I use a tiny little program call Desktop Restore ( Midiox ) , works great on windows 10 32 or 64 bits, just choice the correct bit version. How to use it right click on the Desktop, click save. If you need to restore, same thing right click on the desktop, select restore, if you like just click link below
