    Can't move desktop icons off-screen


    Before this latest update, I used to use all 4 sides of my screen. I used to keep half of each desktop icon out of screen. Now when I try to move an icon a little bit out of screen Windows just won't let me. How do I fix this? I tried changing the regedit entry "IconVerticalSpacing", didn't help.

    :)

  2. Desktop Icons move by themselves off the screen!

    Hello,

    It's been a few days now that my desktop icons move themselves around and off the screen, I'm running a windows 10 with two screens. They usually move above the screen and go off it, I can't find them and I can't move them around.

    How do I fix this?

  3. Desktop icons and most recent Windows 10 Update

    Since the most recent Windows 10 update, I am no longer able to drag desktop icons off the screen; I dislike the recycling bin being on my desktop because I can't change its icon to make it invisible, nor can I remove it from the desktop. Did Microsoft intentionally
    make this happen? If there is any way that I can remove the bin from my desktop, change the icon to a custom icon, or move it off screen again, please tell me how. Thanks!

    P.S. I do not have "Align icons to grid" checked.
