    Hello,

    Kindly further elaborate your concern, to assist you better.

    In the meantime, you may follow the step below to see if this would address your concern:

    • Right-click on your desktop > Click View.

    Note: If you want to manually arrange your desktop icons uncheck Auto arrange icons
    then drag your icons depending on where you want to place them on your desktop. If you want your icons to be aligned to the grid, check

    Desktop Icon Keeps On Moving

    That's because your resolution is changing each time. To test, try setting to 1024x768, arrange a couple of icons and then restart the PC. As long as the resolution after startup is still 1024x768, then the icons won't move. Trust me. *Wink Desktop icons suddenly got much bigger and messed up the arrangement of icons on my... ;)
