Desktop icons cramped on top of one another.

I tried to find a way to get the shortcut icons on my desktop smaller, they are now but they are on top of one another and when I drag and drop they just go back on top of the others.
How do you get back to have the shortcuts the normal size and normal space between each other and what is the way to get them smaller and with a smaller space between them without them going over one another?
Thank you.

XP, Right click on the desktop, click on `arrange iconsby`, then click on `align to grid`

Thanks cycoze, it has align them nicely, but why can't I drag and drop them where I want anymore?

Just a guess but do you have auto arrange ticked?

Now you have aligned them to grid, simply un-tick it, now you should be able move them about again.
