Safe Mode

  sammey 14:09 16 Jan 05

often I have to use safe mode to defrag, and anyhow I prefer it as it takes much less time. Safe mode always scatters the desktop icons and I have to reposition them. Is there any way of locking the icons so that they do not move when using safe mode?

When going into Safe mode leave the icons where they are, as your screen will have beeen set at a lower resolution.

Reboot after defrag and they should all be back where they were.

Thank you everybody, I have installed `Icon restore` so I shall always defrag in safe mode now. Sammey
