    Disable Auto arrange inside a folder


    I have a folder named SHORTS on my Desktop, inside are shortcut icons for many programs i use often. I still have not been able to find a way to arrange in the order i want. If i move anything they just revert back to previous order. Also if i have another folder in the SHORTS the assume a different order than the thumbnails. Yes i have tried numbering them etc. but still would like to move them around like i did in windows 7. Any suggestions? I have tried a few posted reg edits but in the end they all seem to say it will not work in current ver. of win 10 ??

    :)

    Disabling auto arrange in Windows 10

    My system just updated and now I can't arrange folders on my desk top as I need them. It will slow down my work considerably to have to hunt for folders.

    Can anyone tell me how to disable auto arrange in the latest version of Windows? The view function has disappeared from favorites.

    Please no links...just a simples step by step would be appreciated. Thank you. Joanne

    It sounds like you may have some other issue at hand. Step 5 in this tutorial will completely undo the changes made by the disable auto arrange .reg file, then resets folder views back to default.

    Reverting back to a previous image would be the fastest and easiest way to sort whatever this issue is.
