In Win 7 How can I nail the Icons to the Desktop? I have just upgraded my wife to Win7, and there is one thing she hates. Every time there is a reboot, most of her carefully positioned desktop icons are automatically rearranged and jumbled together on the left side of the screen. Is there a way to keep the icons from being rearranged? I have tried various combinations of "align icons to grid" checked/unchecked and "automatically arrange icons" checked/unchecked, but they seem to still be rearranged on reboot.
Right click on the desktop; in view, select align icons to grid, and show desktop icons.
They will start out ordered, but if you move them around, they will stay where you put them.
Mine do, so if your's move after a reboot, we will look some more as to why.
May I also suggest you use sleep(to S3) which is very fast to sleep and resume.
