Everytime I start my Win XP Home PC the Recycle bin moves from where I
place it. I move it to the top righthand corner and everytime I
restart my PC it's back on the left side.

Is there an option or setting to freeze it where I put it?

Thanks...

Right click on the desktop, got to Arrange Icns By and make sure that
Atoarange is NOT ticked.

Hi,

When you right click the Desktop in a blank space and select Arrange Icons
By, what do you have checked off there?

Kelly,

The only options I have checked are Align to Grid & Show Desktop
Icons.

Hope that gives you enough info to help. Thanks again!
