    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.

    How to lock icons in place on the desktop WIN10

    How do I lock icons in place (as I want) on the desktop of windows 10? All of a sudden I have to rearrange all icons after every restart what it's quite annoying. Plus win10 changed the language of my keyboard option.

    How to lock desktop icons in place?


    You can't lock desktop icons. But, as Steve suggests, you can record their positions ... and, if icons get moved, you can restore them to their saved positions.
