How is this annoyance removed from that shell menu? I would like it so persons cannot rearrange desktop icons on my desktop, many icons, only so much desktop, without custom arrangement it's a pain... Isn't there some way to modify a registry key or a group policy setting?
Are you using a shared PC? Each desktop is unique, what you arrange does not show up for another user.
If you are sharing the PC why would your icon arrangement be better than theirs? What if they can't find stuff once you move it around? If it's your own PC and you don't want others using it, just set a user password on it.
