    Desktop icons keeps changing its' place upon bootup


    so im a normal guy with normal desktop icons arrangements. but everytime i boot up my windows, doesn't matter from complete power off or a restart. it's a minor problem but i'd like to get it fixed.

    it used to just be 1 icon (roblox) that were out of line but now IDM aswell. keep in mind that i don't play roblox - not me.

    appreciate any response.

    Hi, a problem some have encountered through several generations of Windows. No one easy solution, it seems.
