Magical Desktop?
« on: February 07, 2014, 10:29:11 AM »
Not really, but it's still strange. I log on to see that my icons are always in a different spot than I had left them, and I know it's not my family pranking me since sometimes I'll just log off, then back on and it still happens. Here are two pictures to show an example:

I noticed mine would sometimes do that when I played certain games. I think they had a different resolution size than my wide screen lappy.

Resolution might be part of it - is your Desktop set up to arrange by 'Date Modified', by any chance?  (Very pretty background, by the way.)

I'm not sure how to check or even change that. (Thanks :D If I remember correctly that artist is Heise Jinyao)

Right-click on the desktop and select 'Arrange Icons By>'

The resolution thing could account for the change from 9 in a column to 7, but I saw that the Notepad-ish icon shifted out of the basic order, which made me question the 'modified' possibility.

Is that set to 'Modified' or something similar?
