A reader is having problems with desktop icons rearranging themselves.

Speaking of the desktop, has anyone figured out how to keep your icons to stay in place like they used to? I have wasted more time putting icons back where I want them.

I only got Windows 10 when I had to this year. I don’t think I have ever had as many problems with any other computer I have had with this one.

Icons don’t work any differently in Windows 10 than in previous versions. I suspect you may have auto-arrange icons checked. Right click on a blank spot in the desktop and choose View.

Uncheck the boxes next to Auto arrange icons and Align icons to grid.

This should help your icons stay where you want them.
