    A few days ago I stopped being able to move my desktop icons around if I try to move one of the icons to a different place it instantly moves back to where it was. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  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.

  3. Desktop Icons Won't Stay Put

    Hi Laurie,

    As per the issue description I understand that you are facing issues with desktop icons.

    I suggest you try the following step in order to arrange the icons.

    • Right click on the desktop.
    • Click on view
    • Check the option auto arrange icons.
    Let us know if this helps.

    Thanks.

    Desktop icons,

    Hi Joanne,

    You can move your icons anywhere on the desktop by making some changes in the icon settings. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on your desktop.
    • Select View.
    • Uncheck Auto arrange icons & Align icons to grid.
    • Check if you'll be able to move your icons where you want them to be.

    Keep us posted if you need more help or if you have further questions.
