    If the image attached correctly, this is what is currently happening within my File Explorer. If I click and drag a file, it will keep it stuck in that position until I open and close the same folder. This happens for every folder that I open using the File Explorer. This has been happening for the last few weeks. It's more of an inconvenience than a major problem. However it's just been rather annoying and I hope to find a away to fix it.

    :)

    desktop icons snap to grid

    Hi!

    Welcome to our community.

    This is Leocadia, independent community expert, and I am glad to assist you today.

    Please, follow the instructions below:

    1.Right-click an empty part of the desktop.

    2.Select the "View" option.

    3.Select "Align Icons to Grid." Your desktop folders and other shortcuts snap to the grid automatically.

    Alternatively, you can unable/disable Align Desktop Icons to Grid with a Registry tweak

    Open the Registry Editor app.

    Go to the following Registry key.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop

    On the right, modify or create a new 32-Bit DWORD value "FFlags". Set it to one of the following values in decimal.

    1075839520 - disable Auto Arrange Icons and Align Icons to Grid

    1075839525 - enable Auto Arrange Icons and Align Icons to Grid

    1075839521 - enable Auto Arrange Icons and disable Align Icons to Grid

    1075839524 - disable Auto Arrange Icons but enable Align Icons to Grid

    Note: Even if you are running 64-bit Windows you must still create a 32-bit DWORD value.Auto Arrange Edit In Registry

    To make the changes done by the Registry tweak take effect, you need to restart the Explorer shell.

    That's it.

    I hope it helps.
