Windows 10: Nomadic desktop icons tamed at last.

    Nomadic desktop icons tamed at last.

    At least for the moment .....

    Subsequent to downloading version 1709 (OS Build 16299.19) the icons stay where I plant them. Whether or not this version is the Fall Creators one I don't know. Perhaps it is but they've dropped the fancy name.

    Whatever it is, it remains to be seen what other surprises, good and bad, reveal themselves.

    That is the Fall Creators Update. I still have an issue with one "desktop.ini" file which refuses to stay where I put it. That is the only icon I have a problem with and it occurs on each system.
