    Icon Superimposing on Another Icon


    I am using Word 2019 on a computer running on Windows 10. Before I select a specific folder for my documents, I often save them to the Desktop temporarily. For some time now, I have noticed an intermittent problem - which occurs with annoying frequency but not every time I save a document to the desktop.


    In the top left of my screen, as I face it, there is a short-cut icon for a back-up program I use. Quite often but not invariably when I save a document to the Desktop, the new document icon superimposes itself right on top of this short-cut icon. This is really annoying - but at least I know where to look for "missing" icons, now. At first, I would look for an icon for a document I knew I saved to the Desktop and just couldn't find it. Finally, I noticed one "sitting" on top of that upper left corner icon that was already there!


    I happened again today. I tried to reproduce the behaviour, but couldn't. I don't know if it just happens the first time in a session that I save a document, or what.


    I am getting sick of this. I don't know what to do to stop it. My choices for the settings for Desktop icons are that they are medium-sized and NOT auto-arranged and NOT aligned to the grid. I like to arrange them myself. These are not recent changes. I always choose these settings. This problem only started to occur, I would estimate, about a month ago - two months at the most.

    :)

  2. Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    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.

    GPU-Z Program Icon Submission

    Suggestion to have an option to change Notification Area icon this way too.
    Suggestion to finally have proper separate Options window like most (all?) Windows programs do.
