  1. Moved desktop icons and changed Autostart settings revert after restarting windows 10 Laptop


    This issue started after the recent updates. Any changes that I make to desktop icon positions, and any apps that I disable the autostart for, get completely undone after restarting laptop.

    Question #1: What could possibly be causing this?

    Question #2: How can I fix it?

    This isn't a major problem (as far as I am aware) but it is incredibly annoying having to redo all of these changes everytime I reset my laptop. Any assistance in solving this would be greatly appreciated.



    Edit- automod message said to include OS build, so here it is: 18363.1316

    Windows 10 desktop icons not in order

    In ccleaner, did you uncheck cleaning the icon cache... have not used in a while; however, I think that is what the option is called.

    Now, if you are setting the icons and they move after you have set the settings and not changed them... you may have the "Random Windows 10 Icon movement problem".
    Some people have this and some don't.

    Here is a thread on the problem at Windows10 forums: Windows 10: Folder View Settings and Desktop Icon Positions Not Saving

    Desktop Icon Keeps On Moving

    That's because your resolution is changing each time. To test, try setting to 1024x768, arrange a couple of icons and then restart the PC. As long as the resolution after startup is still 1024x768, then the icons won't move. Trust me. *Wink Moved desktop icons and changed Autostart settings revert after restarting windows 10 Laptop ;)
