    Desktop icons keep rearranging


    Hello,

    My desktop icons keep rearranging and windows explorer won't save the position I put them in.

    I can rearrange them but when I click 'Refresh' or if I restart explorer or if I reboot they rearrange to another setup. This happens in both normal mode and safe mode.

    I have tried all the solutions available on the internet with no luck, including the obvious ones (trying all the auto-arrange and grid options) and even some more complex ones (sfc, registry tweaks).

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Desktop icons keep rearranging


    This worked for me:
    *right click on a blank space on the desktop
    *the pop-up box shows "AMD Catalyst Control Center" first
    *left click on that.
    *sit back and wait a couple of minutes until the hour glass stops popping up.
    *problem solved. (at least for me.)
    Good Luck
