    How can I stop desktop icons from rearranging themselves after rebooting?


    It occurs after the computer is shut down and rebooted, but not after I merely restart the computer.

    I have already made sure that the “auto arrange icons” is unchecked, and the “IconCache” has been deleted.

    Because of visual problems I have to keep the “change the size of text, app, and other items” at 125%

    :)
