    Everything working except the ability to move folders , files around .


    Windows 10 64bit Home user here with Version 1703 Creators Update OS Build 15063.483 . Having applied Disable_Auto_Arrange-Large_Icons.bat i am able to arrange desktop icons to where ever i want and it sticks even after reboots . Icons staying large as well . The only thing it does not do is allow me to move folders , files around within Windows Explorer. That seems to be the only fix left to do with Large Icons bat . :) Thanks for your excellent work on previous .bat fixes and hopefully there will be a cure for the world's frustrations on this matter too.

    Hello win10client, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You can always arrange desktop icons how you like by default without having to disable auto arrange in folders.

    Unfortunately, disabling auto arrange in File Explorer is no longer working starting in Windows 10 version 1703.

    A month later and still no fix for disabling auto arrange in File Explorer post Windows Creators Update... I guess we will have to use 3rd party apps or revert back to previous versions , folks .

    Yeah, I'm afraid that the workaround is sure looking like it will no longer work in File Explorer anymore.

    What about creating a 3rd party for this issue? I would assume that after a few months if there was a work a round someone would have discovered or found a way. It might be best to create an app that deals with this issue, not like we can expect Microsoft to help with this issue.

    An app would most likely need to use the same method the .reg files use, so it probably wouldn't do any better.

    Disabling auto arrange in the Windows 10 update...


    I'm new to this, so forgive me if it's been discussed earlier. I had a satisfactory work-around to the disabling auto arrange prior to the latest update. Now I see the warning at the top of this thread that it no longer works as it once did. I'm not 100% sure that what I'm asking for is, in fact, "auto arrange disabling." If I may describe my scenario, perhaps you could confirm that this is my issue.

    When traveling, my husband and I both use our cell phones to take pictures, and I also use my regular camera, and my kids use their tablets. Upon returning home and downloading photos to my computer from all those sources, I then attempt to organize all the pictures by day, and merge all the sources together chronologically. That all works fine - as long as we stay in the same time zone AND all our cameras are synced up with each other. I can just do a "sort by date taken" and it's all easy. However, if I forget to sync up our cameras, it becomes a nightmare to put them in chronological order. Therefore, I resort to manually trying to move the images around and renaming them to "lock" them in an order that I can easily sort (sort by name). This is where it gets tricky. I can get them all rearranged the way I want them, but when I go to renumber them, the window refreshes and I lose the order that I had managed to create. Is there ANY way to make this process easier? I long for the ease of Windows XP that would let you put things in any order you wanted, and would keep them that way, no matter how they were named.

    Hello parismel, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Disabling auto arrange would allow you to arrange items in any order and position within a folder. Unfortunately, it no longer works properly anymore.

    For your situation, it may be better to import the photos to another folder when the dates are incorrect so you can rename them there, then move them into your usual photos folder to help keep them sorted how you wanted.

    Hope the new update would enable us allow you to arrange items in any order and position again.
