    Icons forget size and positions on reboot.


    After setting the base resolution to 125%, the screen icons seemed unaffected--until the system is rebooted. At this point, icons are reset to maximum size (only eight fit on the screen). Once icons are manually resized, (Ctrl-Scroll), they're scattered all over the screen. Set "auto-position" and they return to their correct place (left border of the primary screen). Reboot and these changes did not persist. I assume that the system thinks I'm blind.

    Frankly, I think the system is not shutting down correctly (completely?) and not writing these changes to the registry until the last minute and thus not persisted.

    Running a dual-monitor Lenovo Thinkpad W510.

    Ideas?

    :)

    Windows 10 Start in Full Screen mode rearranges my icons randomly

    Title pretty much says it. I like win8-styled start menu and today I upgraded to Windows 10. However, after each reboot icons on start screen become of the default size and change its positions randomly.

    Windows 10 Creators Update Desktop Icons keep getting rearranged

    It didn't help me.

    After reboot, icons are in different positions. If I refresh (F5) they will shift around into seemingly random different positions.
