I am using Remote Desktop to connect my laptop, with a 1024x768 display, to
a desktop which has a 1280x960 display. Every time I connect to my desktop,
the icons on my desktop host are re-arranged to fit my laptop display.



When I use my desktop directly, I have to spend time re-arranging my desktop
icons which were scrambled by my remote desktop login.



Surely there must be a way to tell remote desktop to leave my desktop
arrangement alone!

No.
Not without using some third party "desktop arrangment save/restore tool".
One may come with your video card drivers.

The information is provided "as is", it is suggested you research for
yourself before you take any advice - you are the one ultimately
responsible for your actions/problems/solutions. Know what you are
getting into before you jump in with both feet.
