    Strange, the problem has healed itself. Icons are staying put now and right click on Desktop and selecting Refresh does not cause them to move either.

    No idea what happened but you can bet I wont press Ctrl+Shift+6 again

    Here's the registry path to Desktop icons: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop Maybe you'll find there anything useful.

    Maybe create a second, virtual, desktop with the same set of icons to see it the problem persists.

    Sorry, I haven't noticed your previous post. By the way: thanks for the warning.

    I Fixed My Desktop

    I'm sure I caused this because I do quite a lot of cntrl shift 6 commands working on Cisco Routers & Switches.

    I fixed this by putting the mouse pointer directly on the desktop, right click, click on view and unchecked Show desktop icons. If you click Show desktop icons again it comes back. Click it again and it goes away.
