    DSR Game resolution moving desktop shortcuts


    Hi everyone.

    My monitor is a native 1080p monitor so I have my desktop set at 1920 x 1080

    however when I launch a game like BF1/Rainbow six siege I have the screen resolution at 2560 x 1440 however a new issue has arisen since updating to windows 10 Anniversary update which was not installed previously, when I close or alt tab out a game with a higher resolutions set i.e 2560 x 1440 all my desktop icons are moving where as before they stayed where they were when I closed the game or even if i Alt Tabbed out. It's like the resolutions not refreshing between desktop and the game.


    I have tried In selecting and deselecting allign icons to grid both ticked and unticked but when I close the game or alt tab everything moves and that's it's "new location" so to speak. Any help would be much appreciated I have heard of software for saving desktop icon location but not interested in this if there is a fix out there that anyone knows off I'm open to any suggestions at this point for such a small stupid thing it really does annoy the hell out of me.

    Thanks again


    Brian

    DSR won't work after newest windows 10 pro upgrade

    So i use DSR for some of my games to get a little more visible area in my games when only using a 1080p monitor/tv. this hasnt been a problem until the most recent upgrade to windows 10 pro..... i have to turn dsr back on as for some reason windows took
    it upon itself to change my settings without permission..... and now even though i have turned DRS back on and selected only the resolutions i wanted, i still cannot select these resolutions in game anymore... i can manually set the resolution to one of my
    DSR's through the nvidia geforce experience app yet it does nothing as the setting gets overwritten by windows/the game as soon as i load up

    makes me want to install linux

    does anyone else know the possible causes to this and or a fix?

    ReCore exit to desktop

    this problem happened to me cause i tried to put the game in higher resolution using DSR technology, i refunded the game and got it on a new account and picked full HD resolution and now it's work.
