Hi, I have a new pc with Windows 7 professional 64 bit which I am gradually getting used to after Xp but am having problems with the desktop icons changing position!
I am running a kvm switch (DVI and usb) to control two pc's (if this helps) and when I change between the two computers, the icons on the win 7 pc re-arrange themselves for some reason. Once re-arranged though, they stay that way - but it's not how I want them to be!
This is annoying but I have tried all the 'personalise' settings and also un-checked the 'allow themes to change icons' settings but am now stumped!
There must be a simple explanation for this, could it be related to the kvm switch running on dvi? Maybe because I am switching between pc's the graphics card(s) are resetting to some sort of default values for the displays? I previously was running two pc's on a vga kvm switch with no problems.
madboy33--I've tried that, they still keep moving!
Chub_tor - thanks, I'll keep that in mind if I can't solve the problem.
The main problem is that the icons, which are in one and a half vertical columns so to speak on the left of my desktop, move and leave one icon space about half way down. Almost as if I had un-installed an icon/program - which I havent! The icons change places with each other as well, all apart from the recycle bin which stays put in the top left corner of the screen. I might add that this appears to only have started since I changed the icon size from medium to small after adding more program and shortcut icons.
